The Exercise Science program is concerned with the many aspects of human movement and its application to physical activity and the quality of one’s life. Sport Management is intended for students who are interested in positions within sport and recreation such as coach, athletic administrator, sports information director, compliance, intramural director, athletic academic advisor, recreation director, community recreation, and many other sport and recreation related fields. Students must complete the general education core and the Sport Management core courses. Students should carefully study the specific requirements of the institutions to which they plan to transfer. Based on student transfer needs, course substitutions are possible; however, the degree requirements must be met. Please speak with an Exercise Science advisor or faculty member to finalize your program of study.
Upon completion of all coursework, the student will earn an Associate of Science degree in Exercise Science - Sport Management. Students may find employment with their associate’s degree. A Bachelor’s degree or higher may be required for other positions within sport.
Contact information is available on the Exercise Science program website.

If students choose to transition to another program within the Health Sciences & Wellness pathway, they should be particularly aware of the choice points that indicate when a decision to branch off into another program must be made to ensure credits and time are not lost.
Coursework common to all degrees within this pathway is indicated by CAC, Common Academic Coursework, in the program map.
