The Department of Kinesiology and Sports Management is within the School of Business. The two majors offered are Kinesiology and Sports Management.
The Bachelor of Science degree in Kinesiology prepares a student for career opportunities related to health and wellness in schools, communities, hospitals, commercial health and fitness clubs, and state, federal and corporate wellness programs. The program also seeks to fulfill prerequisites to professional schools in allied health fields (for example, physical therapy and occupational therapy).
The Bachelor of Science degree in Sports Management prepares students for career opportunities in various areas of sports management. The student will receive both a strong background in sports and a strong business component, allowing him or her to develop the competencies required for management level positions in organized sports. Professional sport teams, college athletic departments, sports communication and public relations firms, sports agencies, health and fitness facilities, and parks and recreation departments are some of the businesses and organizations for which graduates will be qualified to work.
The ultimate objective of both majors is to provide in a Christian atmosphere the education and training essential for successful employment or continued educational pursuits after graduation.
Do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.
Yours in Christ,
