Sport Management Concentration

This AS in Individual Studies degree will allow students studying in the Humanities to enroll in a combination of theatre, music and art coursework in preparation for a baccalaureate degree. With the flexibility in design, students will be able to explore the various performance/applied humanities curriculum offered by the college. Students will also have the option to enroll in Business courses to provide a management/marketing focus to their studies. The program will prepare students for transfer to four year institutions into a program of their design not currently offered by the college. Students will have obtained the necessary SUNY general education coursework and be allowed to customize their remaining coursework based on desired transfer school and/or SUNY Transfer path.

The degree path combines business and general education coursework to prepare students for transfer to obtain a Bachelor of Arts or Sciences from SUNY Cortland. In addition, through Health and Wellness and Elective credits, students may enroll in physical education or college sport courses. A liberal arts background, coupled with coursework in management, marketing, accounting, economics and human resource management, will provide the necessary foundation for the student’s interest in the sport industry. Sports are a dynamic growth industry, in the United States and worldwide, and can significantly contribute to an institution’s or region’s economic viability.
