Sport Management Minor

Dream about turning your love of sports into your life’s vocation?

Referees on the field

You might see yourself as a college or professional sports coach, managing the business side of a sport team or fitness facility. Perhaps it’s promoting sporting events or owning a business that creates and sells sport-related products or services. Or, perhaps you’ve identified another of the many dimensions found within the industry of sport that gets you excited! Helping you attain your vision is why we created this Sport Management minor.

 An interdisciplinary program housed in the Linfield Business Department, the Sport Management minor helps round out your knowledge of this highly competitive, but personally rewarding industry. In addition to business, sport-related courses come from the collaborating departments of Economics, Journalism and Media Studies, Philosophy, Health, Human Performance and Athletics, and the Communication Arts Program.

Depending on your major, you will be well-positioned to pursue a variety of careers in the area of sport business and the management of sport. Completion of a Sport Management minor is also good preparation for graduate studies in sport management or athletic administration.
