RECREATION AND SPORT MANAGEMENT MAJOR
Degree: Bachelor of Science
Through coursework, practicum, internship, research, and scholarly activities, the Bachelor of Science in Recreation and Sport Management (RSM) provides students with opportunities to study, analyze, evaluate, and successfully lead and implement programs in the fields of recreation and sport management.
The RSM program prepares students for professional employment in a variety of public, nonprofit, and private recreation and sport settings or graduate studies in the recreation and/or sport disciplines. The RSM major offers students a wide range of exciting career choices within many professional fields. Specialists in these areas manage recreation and/or sport activity facilities, supervise and plan indoor and outdoor recreation and sporting events, and develop recreation and sport services among diverse settings and populations.
The RSM curriculum responds to the growing number of students desiring to study management and leadership in either the recreation or sport fields. All RSM students complete a common core of study and one of two specialized concentrations, recreation management or sport management. The curricula for both concentrations of study align with the program approval competencies of the National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA) and the North American Society of Sport Management (NASSM). The program culminates in a semester-long internship in the field.
