Study Abroad

 Affording our sport management students the opportunity to study abroad provides them with unique opportunities to learn how to adapt to an academic setting different from their own. In turn, this allows them to stand out from the crowd when they go on to pursue challenging and exciting careers in sport organizations. The College of Education and Human Services typically offers two study aboard opportunities for sport management students in May and June each year. Due to COVID-19 these programs were postponed. Students can check back in the Fall for updates on additional study abroad programs. There are no planned faculty led study abroad programs for Summer 2022.
