The Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia approved the degree proposal at its February 12 meeting in Atlanta.
A Bachelor of Science in Sport Management is joining Middle Georgia State University’s degree lineup.
“Sport management is a growing field, nationally and in Georgia,” said Dr. Jon Anderson, Middle Georgia State’s provost. “We are excited about the potential for this degree program, which meets a need for our students interested in working in the business and management side of sports, recreation, fitness, and related industries.”
Middle Georgia State (MGA) will house the bachelor’s degree, to be launched in fall 2019, in the School of Business and offer it on the Cochran and Macon campuses. Most of the University’s intercollegiate sports teams are based on the Cochran Campus but some are based in Macon. While MGA’s student-athletes have diverse academic interests and major in everything from information technology to history, the new degree is expected to be especially attractive to those who want to work in sports-related industries when their playing days are over.
