DESCRIPTION:    The Sport Administration major prepares students for careers in the sport industry through a balanced academic program and numerous practical experiences. Students complete a core group of courses developed to exceed accreditation guidelines, and all students are required to complete the business minor. The curricular balance of sport, business and sociological courses along with three required practical experiences make the program of study one that is cutting edge, particularly when compared to other programs within the state of Ohio and across the country. 

CAREER OPPORTUNITIES:
Upon completion of the major, students will have the opportunity to pursue numerous career paths in the sport industry including managing sport programs at all levels (youth, high school, collegiate, and professional), facility management, event planning, sport marketing and public relations.

ADMISSION
REQUIREMENTS:
Students admitted to the College of Education, Health, and Human Services as freshmen must have been fully admitted to the university.
