The Sport Management program aims to educate students about the diverse social, historical, and managerial aspects of sports.

The interdisciplinary minor, requiring 24-semester hours, is designed to challenge students intellectually in a supportive academic environment. Our goal is to provide a curriculum that best suits students' interests and ensures graduates understand the important role sports plays in society. Additionally, our program provides graduates the skills, knowledge, and experience to bring significant value to their future academic or workplace organizations.

The Sport Management minor brings several academic departments together including business administration, economics, communication, history, speech and drama, and others to allow students a broad understanding of sports' impact and place in society.

This program will appeal to students:

• wishing to pursue graduate work in sports studies or sports management

exploring a career in college or professional sports, non-profit sports organizations, or recreational sports organizations

• planning to coach

• or those wishing to explore the world of sports

In addition to our academic courses, there are opportunities for internships and participation in events both on-and off-campus related to sports and the industry.

Though the program is new, Trinity alumni have worked, or currently work for organizations including Spurs Sports & Entertainment, the Valero Alamo Bowl, San Antonio Sports, the Orlando Magic, Nike, the Texas Rangers, The University of Texas at Austin's Sport Management department, The CE Group, the Memphis Redbirds, Trinity University athletic department, the University of Colorado athletic department, the United States Olympic Committee, Northern Illinois University athletic department, and more.
