This degree is designed to develop practitioners to lead sports programs or enterprises with fairness, integrity, and competence. Whether you aspire to be a school district's athletic director, university instructor in undergraduate sports management courses, or fitness manager, this program will help develop the skills necessary for such leadership positions.
Students are assigned to cohorts, and interaction among cohorts is promoted and encouraged. Issues applicable to sports programs in Texas will be discussed, with topics ranging from state laws on concussions to bidding requirements to teacher/coach contracts.
Whether you choose online or face-to-face delivery of courses, all of your faculty will have terminal degrees (PhD or EdD) and will have experience in sports programs as school administrators, officials, coaches, trainers, officials, or business managers.
