About the Sports Administration Major
Carroll University’s Sports Administration major is ideal for students who are interested in working in administrative roles in sports organizations. You’ll gain the knowledge needed for a successful career in any area of sports and recreation when you learn how to apply relevant skills in a variety of areas to sports management. Minors that complement this program include include the following:
- Film and Television
- Graphic Design
- Liberal Arts Communication
- Management and Leadership
- Web Design
Our students examine a variety of areas such as financial accounting, marketing, facility operation, programming and management, and learn how they directly relate to the field. During your courses you’ll also polish your teamwork skills through exercises and projects as you observe or have hands-on involvement in planning special events including a 5k run through Carroll’s campus.
Students have opportunities to utilize Carroll’s facilities for practical learning, including a wellness center, strength room, dance studio, swimming pool and walking track. Work-study experiences in university community recreation and campus facilities will give you the real-world experience employers are looking for.
During the program you’ll visit world-class sports and entertainment venues in southeastern Wisconsin such as Miller Park and the Fiserv Forum. The lessons you take away from each facility’s professionals will give you important knowledge to utilize as you apply for internships.
To complete the program, you’ll participate in a 15-week internship of your choice.
Durring the internship, you will develop, implement and administer sports administration programming at a Carroll approved organization, and meet with other classmates to hear seminars and discuss your experiences.
