The curriculum for the Sport and Entertainment Management Program has been developed in accordance with standards published by the Commission on Sport Management Accreditation (COSMA). It may be necessary, however, for a student to take additional courses to meet prerequisites, based upon his/her educational and employment history. The program consists of 36 credits, including a cooperative education field placement experience. This field placement may be increased by three credits in place of one elective course, depending upon the student’s background, experience, or present employment status. The program’s elective options provide opportunities for students to pursue additional courses in their specific field of interest, and reflect trends in the sport and entertainment industry. In the last semester, students develop and refine a master’s project in a supportive capstone seminar setting. The courses in the Sport and Entertainment Management Graduate Program are offered in a hybrid format. Each class, therefore, meets once a week in a scheduled classroom environment, with the remaining contact hours to be completed in an online environment.
