How do I choose and register for courses?

The courses in the M.Ed. in Sport Management Program are not sequenced; therefore, you can take courses in any order to complete your degree. Typically, students selece courses they take by determining the "best fit" with their work and personal schedules. If possible, it is advisable to enroll in EDFN 601 (Research Methods), early in your course of study, as it will likely assist you with the research you complete in other courses. If possible, please complete this course while it is taught by Dr. Wimer (sport management faculty). If you have any further questions, please contact your advisor.
