Sport Management prepares you to work on the business side of sport, recreational and leisure services including professional sport teams, college athletic departments, sport communication and public relations firms, sports agencies, health and fitness facilities, parks, and recreation organizations. Our Sport Communication Concentration is specifically for those interested in careers in sports information or sport communication and public relations firms. In addition, students can also choose to specialize their degree with Business or Graphic Design classes.
Our faculty encourages students to get involved with professional organizations such as the North American Society for Sport Management (NASSM). NASSM is actively involved in supporting and assisting professionals working in the fields of sport, leisure and recreation. The purpose of the North American Society for Sport Management is to promote, stimulate, and encourage study, research, scholarly writing, and professional development in the area of sport management - both theoretical and applied aspects. Topics of interest to NASSM members include sport marketing, future directions in management, employment perspectives, management competencies, leadership, sport and the law, personnel management, facility management, organizational structures, fund raising, and conflict resolution.For more information about the NASSM organization visit their website at http://www.nassm.com/.
