SPORT AND EVENT MANAGEMENT
BACHELOR OF ARTS
The Sport and Event Management (SEM) major provides students with a cross-curricular experience by merging coursework from the Sport Business Management degree and the Hospitality Management degree. The SEM program prepares students for careers in event management (virtual, esport, and traditional), sport event management, and facilities management. The program is structured around application-based courses that provide students with hands-on experiences in the sport and event management field as they progress toward their degree.
The minor in business administration is open to non-business majors only. This minor includes eight courses (24 credits) designed to prepare students with general knowledge of the world of business, along with the communication skills and decision-making tools needed to succeed in business.
No minor course may be taken on a pass-fail basis, and students must earn a minimum GPA of 2.75 in the required business courses to meet minor program requirements.
