This minor is offered jointly with the School of Recreation, Health, and Tourism.

It offers academic preparation in an industry that has seen rapid expansion in the sale, design, and production of sport-related games around the world. The required courses provide students with a foundational overview of the sports industry, the sport management academic discipline, and computer game design. Students can complement that knowledge with the selection of courses in these two disciplines that meet their individual interests.


Eight credits of coursework must be unique to the minor and students must complete all coursework with a minimum GPA of 2.00. For policies governing all minors, see AP.5.3.4 Minors.
