J’s Answer

There are definitely areas you can major in when it comes to sports. The responses have given you several leads To further your exploration, you can go to the Occupational Outlook Handbook and search the suggestions indicated. You will find a description of the occupation, the education needed, pay and projections of growth in the occupation. Also, there is a tab you can click on for similar occupations.

Finally, given that you are interested in sports or have narrowed it down to this area, do not hesitate to call schools in which you are interested and speak with an admissions counselor regarding the major. The admissions counselor may be able to connect you with someone in your major area of interest.

The Occupational Outlook Handbook web address is

Tons! Sports medicine, communications, business and law can all have focuses on sports. I am sure there are a ton of others. I would think about what part you want to do. Keeping players healthy, mobile, and treat injuries = sports med. Sports writer or sports newscaster = communications. Agent = business, and obviously lawyers = law. I say do not only look at what degrees they offer, but look for high graduation ratings in those degrees. I hope this helps.
Thank you comment icon Thanks for your encouragement! ISAIAH

Siddharth’s Answer

2 key areas in sports that are lucrative are Data Analytics and Physiotherapy. I would recommend majoring in those for your undergraduate degree to help you get a foot into the sports industry easily.

Andrew’s Answer

A sports management program entails learning all management aspects of running a business - the business client is a team or individual or groups. You will learn important leadership aspects, working with people, managing a budget and finding ways for your people to succeed. If you are interested in sports, this might be a good match for you and you will also obtain the same skills to be a successful manager in many other industries - leading a sales team, motivating people, connecting activity to outcomes and just creating a fun, competitive environment at your organization. Good luck.

Melanie’s Answer

Definitely! There is Sports Management, Physical Education (which could also include coaching), Physical Therapy, Exercise Science, Athletic Training, and more! It depends on what colleges you are looking at. There is also many opportunities if you simply go into Marketing or Business because you can do jobs within these field for sports teams. I would definitely talk with a guidance counselor about your options and see what schools offer different programs depending on what you are looking for.
