Sport Communication

The Sport Studies program provides students with knowledge and skills necessary for careers in the sport industry. Students majoring in this field will choose a cognate in either business or communication. The sport business cognate is designed to prepare students to work in fields related to management, development, sponsorship, marketing, planning, organizing, budgeting, operations, and leadership at the professional, collegiate, and recreational levels of the sport industry. The sport communication cognate, meanwhile, is designed to prepare students to work in such fields as sport journalism, broadcasting, public relations, media relations, and videography. The program seeks to combine classroom education with hands-on experience, as all students will complete an internship in the sport industry prior to graduation. Please contact Dr. Younghan Lee, Dr. Matthew Zimmerman, Mr. Matthew Rye, or Dr. Gregg Twietmeyer with questions about the Sport Studies program.
