Syracuse University's Department of Sport Management strives to ensure students with a passion for sport also gain a broad knowledge of the business. A generous $5 million gift from renowned sports agent David B. Falk '72 and his wife, Rhonda S. Falk '74, established the David B. Falk Center for Sport Management, a collaborative, interdisciplinary research center that will be the focal point of the Department of Sport Management in SU's David B. Falk College of Sport and Human Dynamics.
The academically rigorous sport management curriculum combines program-specific courses with professional electives and liberal arts requirements, providing students with the tools to pursue a career--or even graduate study--in sport. Coursework covers areas including marketing, management, communications, societal influences and impacts, ethics and law.
The 124-credit bachelor of science (B.S.) program includes up to 15 elective credits, allowing students to pursue a concentration or minor tailoring their studies according to their professional interests.
For example, to enhance business skills, students can minor in accounting, finance, marketing or management studies. If students have an interest in the outdoors, they can minor in outdoor recreation and tourism. Or, they may wish to sample Syracuse's multitude of courses in communications, law, social sciences, and foreign languages tailoring a program that meets their interests and needs.
In addition, the required 12-credit senior capstone experience provides students with the opportunity to gain hands-on experience in the industry before they graduate.
