The Master of Sport Science (MSS) in Sport Management is designed to expand and enhance the skills of students at all levels of experience in the industry. This online graduate level leadership program will provide a biblical foundation for those who serve in public, private or Christian organizations. Through a solid foundation of core courses, all students will expand their knowledge base and advance in understanding while being challenged personally and professionally. In addition, students will participate in an internship experience as well as select electives in a specific area of interest to become an expert in their field, expand their professional network and contribute meaningfully to their community.
As cultural and societal issues detract from and reduce the value of the sport industry, there is a great need for biblically educated Christians in the field of sport. Armed with biblical wisdom and truth, Christians are called to embrace and engage the world of sport to be a part of God’s redemptive work as His glory is reflected through the abilities and giftings of His creation. The program is developed with the professional competencies required to meet certification guidelines for graduate programs with the Commission on Sport Management Accreditation (COSMA).
