The M.S. in Sport Management degree was formally approved by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board and became effective August 18, 2015.
The M.S. in Sport Management has replaced the M.A. in Kinesiology - Sport Management degree. This is a great change for our students and we are excited to be offering this new degree!
The mission of the graduate Sport Management emphasis in Kinesiology at Sam Houston State University is to effectively prepare students for a variety of executive positions within athletic and sport organizations at the community, educational, and/or professional levels. Students will be provided quality instruction, the latest technology, opportunities for research and professional development, and excellent internship experiences.
In return, students are required to become acquainted with relevant issues in the field, understand the research process, and represent the program's goals and objectives in the field. The visibility and prestige of the program will be enhanced through student activities, faculty and student research projects, and involvement with state and national organizations.
Individuals completing the program will be ready to assume leadership positions in the sport management and/or academic domains.
