MS Sport Administration - non-thesis
Fitness management master's degree programs incorporate topics on fitness, health and sports with business and leadership skills. Fitness management programs are limited; therefore, you might want to consider enrolling in a sports or health management master's degree program. Some programs require you to hold a bachelor's degree in fitness management or a related field, but many programs take students from a variety of academic backgrounds.
A fitness or sports management program can show you how to apply advanced fitness knowledge to business and marketing positions. Most programs end with a thesis project or a comprehensive final exam. Some programs allow you to gain clinical experience by interning at a fitness club, athletic facility or community center. Typical fitness management topics that you'll explore include:
* Advanced kinesiology
* Teamwork and leadership
* Athletic management
* Sports psychology
* Fitness marketing
* Sports business `
