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.
