School of Human Movement, Sport, & Leisure Studies
Specialization in Sport Administration
The specialization in Sport Administration addresses the planning, organizational, leadership, and evaluative aspects of management within the sport enterprises by holding the institution of sport to a high level of inquiry and serious scientific scrutiny. Students work with their advisors to complete a series of courses in the sport administration program and in a variety of other disciplines related to their academic interests and goals, and this includes: business administration, marketing, mass communication, higher education administration, interpersonal communication, and psychosocial foundations of sport. All students in sport administration complete either a thesis or a project. The program is planned over two continuous years of study and adheres to the curriculum standards established by the National Association for Sport and Physical Education/North American Society for Sport Management.
Students work closely with their advisor in developing a focus of study, selecting courses, and deciding whether to complete a thesis or master's project.
