Undergraduate | Sport Administration | Kent State University

Undergraduate

The Sport Administration major prepares students for careers in the sport industry through a balanced academic program and numerous practical experiences. Students complete a core group of courses developed to exceed accreditation guidelines, and all students are required to complete the business minor. The curricular balance of sport, business and sociological courses, along with three required practical experiences, make the program of study one that is cutting edge, particularly when compared to other programs within the state of Ohio and across the country.

Admission Guidelines:

  • Students are admitted to health and human services programs and educational studies using the university admission criteria (see the Entering the University section of this Catalog), with the exception of the sport administration program, which requires a 2.75 high school GPA for entering freshmen and a 21 ACT or 980 SAT score. Selective admission criteria are used in some programs in the college. Students who do not meet the GPA requirements of their intended major may enroll as pre-majors for selected programs or EHHS General until which time they have the required GPA. Students desiring to major in human development and family studies or speech pathology and audiology are admitted as pre-majors and later are accepted into the appropriate program only after specific requirements have been met. It is imperative that students contact the individual school for detailed information.

Sports Administration Major and Business Minor Admission Requirements:

  • Students must have a 2.50 GPA overall to be accepted into both the sport administration major and business minor. Students also must complete minimum 60 semester hours prior to being accepted into the business minor.
