The Sport Management program effectively blends these two distinct fields of study – sport and business administration – in an effort to prepare students for careers in this field.

The sport management degree emphasizes experiential learning through practical assignments and students are required to complete at least six credit hours of internship experience with a sport organization. Additionally, through collaboration with the National Interscholastic Athletic Administrators Association (NIAAA), students will complete the academic requirements for the NIAAA’s Certified Athletic Administrator (CAA) or the Registered Athletic Administrator (RAA).

Students seeking to earn their Master in Business Administration can do so in conjunction with their Bachelor in Science in sport management degree in 5 years.

In our Sports Journalism program, you’ll learn how to work as a journalist with a special interest, knowledge and skills in sports. Our students learn how to find and work with sports information. They also learn how to report, write, shoot and edit sports news for print, audio, video and on-air broadcasts. The Web, newspapers, magazines, radio and television all play a role in a graduate’s education. You’ll gain hands-on experience reporting sports news and doing play-by-play, interviews and color commentary for our radio station, WHSN 89.3 FM, for our television mobile-production unit and for our TV news and sports programming. And you can be a sports writer for our student-run, online newspaper The Spectator.

Our focus is to prepare our Sports Journalism students to become “backpack” journalists. They learn not only the writing part of the job but also the photography and video skills needed to be successful in this evolving field.

Two Separate But Interwoven Concentrations
