About the Sport Management Master’s Program

The Master of Science in Sport Management provides advanced study in management theories, principles, and research about the sport industry. This degree requires a minimum of 36 hours of graduate courses and provides thesis and non-thesis options. The thesis option requires successful completion of a research project culminating in a thesis and its defense, which comprises 6 of the 36 hours. The non-thesis option requires 36 hours of coursework along with passing of a comprehensive evaluation. Each student will have a faculty advisor with whom the planned course of study must be developed.

Master of Business Administration and Other Master’s Degrees (pending institutional approval). Rawls College, in association with other colleges and schools, offers programs that enable students to obtain selected master’s degrees and the 42-hour Master of Business Administration. Applications should be made through and approved by the respective colleges involved in these programs. These dual programs require 12 to 24 fewer hours than if both degrees were pursued separately. In collaboration with the Texas Tech School of Law, a student may complete a dual degree program comprised of 114 credit hours (with 12 hours shared between each degree for an actual total of 90 credit hours) and graduate with a J.D. and M.S. in Sport Management. This year-round, full-time program can be completed in six academic semesters and two summers.
