The Sports Administration major consists of a core of business classes and also includes two concentrations from which students select additional courses in an effort to specialize their curriculum.
- The management concentration prepares students for leadership roles in sports.
- The communication concentration allows students to take classes that prepare them for careers in sports information, journalism, and sports communication.
Students will be required to take a core of business classes in addition to the course work that they will complete in their respective track that they select.
