Pre-Major Admission

Students must first declare Sport Management as their major prior to applying for the program. Once a student has declared their major as Sport Management the student will be assigned an advisor for the program and will be allowed to apply for the program once all requirements have been met.

HP 490/590: Sport Tourism Super Bowl (Fall 2017/Spring 2018)

´╗┐Due to high interest, students must apply to take HP 490/590: Sport Tourism Super Bowl. Applications will be accepted until Friday March 17 and students will be notified by Friday March 24. Students from all programs are welcome to apply, however students in the sport management major and graduate program will be given first priority, followed by pre-sport management majors, then students from other majors and programs at the university.

Note that this class will require registering for 2 credits in Fall 2017 (online) and 1 credit in Spring 2018 (M/W 10-10:50am). There are two sections and you will be directed which section to register for if you are accepted into the class. You will be expected to volunteer in the Twin Cities for Super Bowl related events from approximately Jan 21-Feb 4, 2018 which means you may need to make alternate arrangements for your other courses during that time. You will be responsible for your own transportation during this time.
