Career options include high school, collegiate, amateur, and professional sport management, sport business management, coaching, or employment with non-profit sport agencies. Coordinated major/minor programs are available on an interdepartmental basis to broaden the employment opportunities in sport retail, merchandising, journalism, broadcasting, or exercise science. Such coordinated programs require early advisement. Students who desire to pursue one of the career opportunities should contact the department of physical education and sport for early advisement.
