Sport and Recreation Management | BA
The program prepares students for careers in managing organizations in the sport, recreation, and leisure industries. By developing professional knowledge and skills, as well as critical thinking skills, our students are prepared for significant career flexibility. The blending of business and kinesiology courses is designed to prepare students to work in a broad array of management positions (in both non‐profits and for-profits).
At New England College, the discipline covers the study of management theories, leadership, financial management, marketing and sponsorships, the sociology of sport, recreation facilities management, legal issues and risk management, and professionalism in the industry. In consultation with the faculty advisor, students will further select courses within the major and across disciplines to satisfy personal interests and strengths.
