Master of Education in Sport Management
The M.Ed. in Sport Management program is designed to provide students the leadership and management skills to handle the unique challenges within the sports industry. We combine the institution of sport into the realm of management to prepare students for an exciting and challenging career.
The Sport Managament graduate program is an interdisciplinary degree that gives students a choice of concentration, either athletic coaching or athletic management, both consisting of 12 courses (36 credits). Both concentrations ground their study in professional core courses that include research methods, psychology, and educational philosophy.
“Learning about the history of sport, especially women's role in the development of sport in America, was very interesting. I had the opportunity to learn about the development and history of the NCAA, which is very relevant in my field of athletic compliance where I work closely with the NCAA rules and regulations. ”- Gabriella Johnson | Class of '22, Athletic Management
“The program directly aligned with my professional experience in the sport management industry and allowed me to reference course work from the program, providing me guidance on projects I have had to complete in my current position as the Director of the Academic Center for Student-Athletes at Shippensburg University. ”- Trejon Dinkins | Class of '22, Athletic Management
