Recreation and Sport Management

Through coursework, practicum, internship, research, and scholarly activities, the Bachelor of Science (B.S.) in Recreation and Sport Management provides students with opportunities to study, analyze, evaluate and successfully lead and implement programs in the fields of recreation and sport management. At the graduate level, the Master of Science (M.S.) in Sport Management meets the unique needs of individuals who seek entry into careers or advancement in careers in managing sport organizations, agencies and facilities.

The RSM program prepares students for professional employment in a variety of public, nonprofit, and private recreation and sport settings or graduate studies in the recreation and/or sport disciplines. The RSM major offers students a wide range of exciting career choices within many professional fields. Specialists in these areas manage recreation and/or sport activity facilities, supervise and plan indoor and outdoor recreation and sporting events, and develop recreation and sport services among diverse settings and populations.‌

The RSM curriculum responds to the growing number of students desiring to study management and leadership in either the recreation or sport fields. All RSM students complete a common core of study and pursue a minor or take classes in an interest area that supports the field. The curriculum aligns with the program approval competencies of the National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA) and the North American Society of Sport Management (NASSM). The program culminates in a semester-long internship in the field.
