Physical Education - Sports Management

Outdo the competition with a sports management degree.

Organized sports thrills you — whether it’s our very own Bulldogs or the New York Yankees. Our master’s degree in sports management will give you the background you need to become a part of a college athletics program or a professional sports franchise. In addition to the course requirements, which include courses in the principles of sports management, and sport and the law, an internship course will give you valuable real-world experience in the field. With your master’s degree in hand, you’ll be fully prepared to be a part of the next championship team.

Professionals in the sports management field are passionate about what they do and enjoy the challenges of learning about business. It’s very rewarding for me to be able to have a positive impact and influence upon youth headed into this field.
