The academically rigorous Sport Management curriculum combines program-specific courses with professional electives and liberal arts requirements, providing students with the tools to pursue a career – or graduate study – in sport. Coursework covers areas including marketing, management, communications, societal influences and impacts, ethics, event management, and law.
The 124-credit bachelor of science (B.S.) program includes up to 15 elective credits, allowing students to pursue a concentration or minor tailoring their studies according to their professional interests.
For example, to enhance business skills, students can minor in accounting, finance, marketing or management studies. Or, they may sample Syracuse’s multitude of courses in communications, law, social sciences, and foreign languages, tailoring a program that meets their interests and needs.
In addition, the required 12-credit Sport Management Senior Capstone experience provides students with the opportunity to gain hands-on experience in the industry before they graduate.
