The sports and recreation industries are booming. And with a flourishing industry comes a demand for well-educated leaders to fill a variety of roles including media relations, advertising and sales promotion, marketing, financial management, facilities planning and administration. Rising above the competition and gaining access to this competitive industry requires a superb academic background and substantial practical experience. You can prepare for these opportunities through the acclaimed Bachelor of Science Degree Program in Sport Management at St. John's University. Designed to prepare students for successful and challenging sport and recreational management careers, this 126-credit program focuses on applying business principles to the industry while drawing upon ongoing relationships to provide internship opportunities at well-known sports organizations such as Madison Square Garden, NBCUniversal, the Brooklyn Nets, and more. Students have also interned at many organizations outside the greater metropolitan area, including the Los Angeles Sparks, Tulane University, Disney/ESPN Wide World of Sports in Orlando, the United States Olympic Committee in Colorado Springs, the Leicester Tigers (UK Rugby Union), and the Yokohama F-Marinos (J-League Soccer). For students interested in coaching, the Coaching Option includes three courses (SPM 1050, 1051, and 1052) that are part of the requirements to apply for a Temporary Coaching License in New York State.
