 Sport Management

Judson’s newly-modified Sport Management major incorporates courses in facility and event management, economics, marketing, accounting, finance, leadership, and technology to provide a cutting-edge foundation full of competencies that future employers will demand. The revised core also allows plenty of elective space for students to pursue a minor related to their personal interests and career goals. Our graduates are working across the country and overseas in the areas of sport facility management, sport retailing, sports information, sports marketing, sales, and more.

Sport Management Program Goals*

The Department of Exercise and Sport Science prepares students for a variety of careers and provides theoretical and application based courses, plus practicums, student teaching and internship experiences, in order to prepare ESS majors for:

  • Students will develop, both personally and professionally, into well-educated, ethical, competent sport management professionals.
  • Students will understand and be prepared to deal effectively with critical issues in a changing global environment.
  • Students will be able to connect key concepts related to the historical, sociological, and psychological foundations of sport.
  • Students will demonstrate competency in the foundations of sport management including but not limited to management concepts, governance and policy, and international sport.
  • Students will demonstrate competency in the functions of sport management including but not limited to operations, marketing, communication, and finance.
  • Students will demonstrate competency in skills, knowledge, and abilities related to the environment of sport management including but not limited to legal and ethical aspects, diversity, and technology.
  • Students will engage in experiential learning designed to promote relevant career experience.
  • Students will synthesize and apply knowledge gained through their curricular coursework with a capstone experience.
  • Students will reflect on the Christian faith’s implications as applied to life, work, and learning.

*Across the curriculum, these learning objectives will be purposefully embedded into course content through creative pedagogies, interactive discussions, reflective assignments/assessments, and experiential learning. The assumed foundational content knowledge that should exist in each graduate through the calculated scope and sequence of all course objectives will be augmented by an overall emphasis on professionalism as it applies to communication, ethics, and technology.
