Sport Management On Campus

Master’s Program

Department of Kinesiology and Health Education

Our Sport Management master’s programs prepare students to work in nearly every facet of organized sports. With a focus on the business side of sports, graduate students learn the skills necessary to succeed in a successful professional organization. Students will be enrolled in courses that cover aspects of marketing, event planning, sport analytics, ethics, law, sport communication and strategic planning.

We welcome students from all academic backgrounds with a passion for sport, recreation and physical activity.

You will enter the On-Campus Sport Management master’s program with a cohort and take five of your six core courses and one elective in your first year. In your second year, you will conduct a semester-long internship (a “six-hour” course), take your remaining core course (Strategic Management), and fulfill electives. 

An advisor will be assigned to you before you arrive on campus.  You will need to meet with your advisor every semester to register for new classes, and to make sure you stay on track. Talk with your advisor about your future goals so they can help you choose electives that enrich your career path.  Please note: the internship cannot be scheduled until you have taken the five core courses required in Year One.

Please familiarize yourself with all the internship requirements during Year One so you can find an internship that aligns with your career goals. In special circumstances, a few students have been granted permission to intern in the summer between Year One and Year Two in the program.
