Sport and fitness management prepares students for careers in the sports, recreation and fitness industry. Students will learn principles of business, including marketing, finance, management and law while applying those principles to different areas of the sport industry. Students who graduate with an Associate of Arts degree focusing in sport and fitness management will be prepared to transfer to a four-year college/university.
Sport and fitness four-year graduates will be prepared to begin careers in a variety of areas. Professional sport teams, college athletic departments, sport communication and public relations firms, sports agencies, health and fitness facilities and park and recreation organizations are some of the businesses for which graduates will be qualified to work.
Preparation for IHCC:
A strong mathematics and English background is recommended for this area.
Since the bachelor’s degree requirements of various transfer institutions differ, students planning to transfer to a four-year institution are strongly advised to familiarize themselves with the requirements of the program at the institution to which they plan to transfer. Students should consult with an advisor at the transfer institution and with an IHCC academic counselor to plan a program that meets those requirements.
