What You’ll Learn
Students in the athletic administration program will administer and supervise personnel in athletic settings.
Our students receive valuable experience effectively managing space and resources in athletic settings while developing skills to market athletic programs.
Our Athletic Administration program is tailored toward students who hold relevant undergraduate degrees other than physical education. Students will employ learned skills in a semester long practicum in an athletic setting which will help you grow outside of class, and also clarify your career interests.
We provide opportunities to engage in research related to athletic administration and/or coaching. Students will learn evidence-based practices to solve problems in athletic settings.Curriculum & Learning Outcomes
