Sport Management Degree Programs


The graduate Sport Management program is designed to academically prepare students for positions in the ever expanding and changing sports industry.  Graduate students enrolled in the program pursue a number of sport career paths including college athletic administration, professional sport marketing and promotions, sport facility management, sport event management, recreational sports management and supervision, health club and fitness management, amateur sport organization administration, etc.

An online delivery format of the graduate Sport Management program is also available.  For more information click here.


The undergraduate Sport Management program offers a curriculum that allows students to take courses in a variety of sport and business areas including sport marketing, sport law, sport facility management, sport fiscal management, accounting, economics, sport ethics, and sport administrative theory.  This foundation of sport and business knowledge is applied in a job oriented internship experience during the student's final semester.


Both the graduate and undergraduate Sport Management programs at Old Dominion University require the completion of a 400 hour internship experience in a sport related job setting. The internship experience is usually taken as the final or culminating experience in the student's academic program.

*Please note: Graduate students may complete a thesis option or research problem in place of the internship experience.


A 15-credit hour undergraduate minor in Sport Management is available.  The minor includes SMGT 214 - Introduction to Sport Management plus four additional Sport Management three-credit courses.
