I am looking to major in this in college. Are there any schools I should look at. Or does anyone have any information about the major and some careers you can go into. Thanx. Patrick

I don't know what you really are thinking about, but if you want to do something in Sports, much like myself here are some suggestions.

Public Relations
Broadcasting/Journalism
Communications
Sports Therapy
Advertising

Also, my friend is a law student, but he has no interest in becoming a lawyer, he is going to become an Agent. I know Marquette and Tulane offer Sports Law...I think they are the only 2 who currently offer it, but more should pop up because it will take off.

Interesting you should ask. I am also looking into a career in sports, probably on the marketing side.

Here is a link of all schools that offer sports management as a major:
http://www.nassm.com/universities.htm

Or, if you want to be an agent, you could study pre-law/law and focus on sports, perhaps through an internship.

I have done a lot of research looking into this topic so if u have any questions feel free to PM me.

People generally say that Ohio University and UMass are among the best programs.

hey whats up Spiegs, talk to the Rizzo guy i told you about. Anyway, UMass apparantly has a kick ass program. I am gonna be a HS Jr. and am seriousely considering applying to UMass on that program alone.

i will check out Ohio. UMich has a good one also. Apparantly it is a really small major, but growing. Actually any of these jobs would be awesome (journalism, broadcasting, agent, advertising) really anything that would give me a career in colleigate or proffesional sports! I like the Law school idea for ana agent. If you go to law school, can you specialize in Sports?

I know Marquette and Tulane offer Sports Law or at least gear some programs towards Sports Law...My friend is going to ASU for law and wants to be an agent. He applied to 50 schools and knows what each school offers and specializes in. He told me those are the only 2 that specialize in it, but you can still become an agent without specializing in Sports Law in school.

More schools will start to offer it, since it is pretty popular at those two schools and gaining popularity in general.

I did not think anyone actually got a degree in Sports Managment that was not on a full ride for football or basketball etc. What the hell do you do with a sports managment degree anyway...become an athletic director?
