Sport Professions

The Department of Sport Professions offers majors in Leisure Services, Sport Management and Teacher Certification in Physical Education with several minors that include Athletic Training, Coaching, and Sport Management.


The Sport Professions Faculty brings extensive experience to each of these majors and minors. With this experience, our faculty is able to prepare students in their given major to be outstanding leaders. Our mission is to give students the opportunity to become competent leaders in their fields and turn a passion for sport or fitness into viable careers. Each of our majors includes an internship requirement designed to provide both hands-on learning and networking opportunities. Majors are expected to demonstrate ethical and professional behavior and become independent thinkers and lifelong learners. The Sport Professions program emphasizes real-life learning, leadership, rigor through research, professionalism, and active participation in campus life at Newberry College.
