Get Started

Are you ready to take the next steps?

Sport Administration majors get active with the business side of the field. You’ll tackle the principles of accounting, economics, marketing, law, ethics, administration, and sociology, all in the context of sport. You’ll complete two field placements, and you can develop professional experience in your internship with a sports organization. And by graduation, you’ll be qualified to pursue careers as diverse as your course load.

“I'm thankful for all the help the Exercise Science faculty gave me. After talking to many, many people who've graduated with Exercise Science degrees, I feel that FLC prepared me better than most other schools. When there's a chance to recommend FLC's Exercise Science program, I do.”
