Sport Management Minor

The Sport Management minor offers an opportunity for students outside of the major to strategically take classes in our SML curriculum, specifically designed to provide students with the basic knowledge of sport management. The minor consists of two required Sport Management courses and then a variety of options across our SML curriculum and within Paul College.

Admission into the minor is based on successful completion of SML 580 Sport Industry and a minimum GPA of 2.0. Please contact for additional information.
