Exercise Science and Leisure Studies (Sport Management Concentration) is primarily designed to prepare
you for careers in the sport management industry.
The program of study in Sport Management aims to develop an understanding of the concepts and theories of management to their application to the planning and supervision of sport. You will acquire the skills needed to develop competent management skills to respond to the needs, wants and motivations of sport, corporate and community populations, and to administer and manage the organization that provides services.
The Exercise Science and Leisure Studies major will also complete a supervised field experience. This involves the observation of professionals in the field, as well as a work related experience that places the Exercise Science student in an environment where you can experience the day-to-day operations of the profession. Valley City Parks and Recreation and VCSU have provided the setting for the field experience.
