Sport Studies, B.S.
These courses are designed to introduce the student to the extensive literature on sport as a mass social phenomenon, an industry, and a career path. Several courses are grounded in a cognate discipline (e.g., psychology, sociology). One course introduces students to the complex nature of the sport industry. Another course examines the principles of coaching and leadership in sport. Another provides a foundation in sport psychology. In "Senior Seminar," students conduct a research project for an agency such as UNH Athletics or the NHIAA. They also complete a portfolio that reflects their career at UNH.
Students choose electives based on their interests. Currently we offer the following electives: sport marketing, sport history, basic athletic training, athletic administration, sport law, events management, performance enhancement, and psychological factors in sport.
Cognate choices – course taken outside the department – also depend on student interests. Whenever possible, we recommend that a student pursue a minor or a double major. Common choices include psychology and administration.
