Making my way through the Sport and Entertainment Management track, I gained
skills and knowledge that are transferable into any job, not just one in athletics.
I feel more confident in my abilities as a coach, as well!     - Scott Hammell '12

The curriculum for the Sport and Entertainment Management Program consists of 36 credits, including a cooperative education field placement experience. This field placement may be increased by three credits in place of one elective course, depending upon the student’s background, experience, or present employment status. The program’s elective options provide opportunities for students to pursue additional courses in their specific field of interest, and reflect trends in the sport and  entertainment industry. In the last semester, students develop and refine a master’s project in a supportive capstone seminar setting.


The courses in the Sport and Entertainment Management Graduate Program are offered in a hybrid format. Each class, therefore, meets once a week in a scheduled classroom environment, with the remaining contact hours to be completed in an online environment.
