Minor in Sport Management

The minor in Sport Management will allow students across Temple University to augment their major degrees with exposure to a program that prepares students to lead and succeed in the fast-paced world of sport, recreation and leisure management. The sport management program integrates foundational business principles with innovative concepts related directly to the distinct industry of sport. Temple's Sport and Recreation Management program is one of the oldest and most distinguished programs of its kind in the country. The required courses serve to provide students an overview of different sectors of the sport industry; elective courses offer more in-depth exploration of the support segments across multiple industry sectors.

The minor in Sport Management is open to non-Sport and Recreation Management majors only. It provides a good foundation for students who wish to apply to the School of Sport, Tourism and Hospitality Management's Master of Science in Sport Business program.
