What Can I Do With This Major?

SPORT STUDIES MAJOR

The Bachelor of Science degree in sport studies is designed for students interested in careers in wellness and leisure industries, sports management, sports communication, sport sociology, allied health fields, sports psychology, rehabilitation, fitness and coaching.

This non-teaching major also positions graduates for admission to a range of graduate programs supporting practice and research in human performance and the allied health professions.

Study in human movement and exercise will provide sport studies majors with a comprehensive understanding of the physiological and psychosocial foundations of movement in exercise and sport.

The framework of the sport studies program offers students a unique movement-based experience. Students choose from among five cognate tracks:

  • Human Development and Learning
  • Sport Sociology
  • Human Movement Sciences
  • Sports Communications
  • Sports Management
