Courses and Learning Outcomes
In addition to Southern’s innovative Liberal Education Program (LEP), Sport Management
students will develop an individualized plan of study, including a combination of
core and concentration or elective courses, and have the option of pursuing a minor
and/or a study abroad experience.
Core courses provide a strong theoretical and practical foundation in sport leadership,
athletic administration, sport ethics, sport marketing, event management, facility
management, research methods, and legal aspects of sport. All Sport Management students
take these courses.
In addition to the core courses for the Sport Management major, students also have
their choice of a variety of elective courses in Sport Management. Students may also
pursue one of the RTSM Department minors (Leadership Development or Event Management)
or another minor in any department at Southern!
