Sport Management Admissions Requirements

B.S. SPORT MANAGEMENT

The B.S. with a major in Sport Management consists of two phases, the pre-sport management and the professional content phases. The pre-sport management phase consists of introductory courses and the basic University Core Curriculum. The professional content phase consists of advanced coursework specific to the field of sport management.

A soon as a student thinks he/she is interested in declaring Sport Management as a major, it is strongly recommended that he/she schedules an advising appointment. To find the Sport Management advisor based on your last name, click www.westga.edu/coeadvisement/index_466.php

To be accepted into the professional content phase, students must meet the requirements as noted below. 

  1. Student must complete all of the Area A-E requirements prior to taking courses from the professional content area. Transfer students who lack up to two courses in Areas A-E may take specified courses concurrently during their first semester of enrollment at UWG.
