Accelerated B.S.Ed. in Sport and Leisure Management with a concentration in Sport and Leisure Management/M.S in Health and Sport Science with a concentration in Sport and Leisure Management
This program allows outstanding undergraduates to begin the coursework for the Master of Science in Sport and Leisure Management during their senior year. Students are encouraged to begin planning to enter the Accelerated B.S.Ed./M.S. program early in their undergraduate career, in consultation with their advisor in the Department of Health and Sport Sciences.
Working with the undergraduate and graduate academic coordinators, undergraduates selected into this program begin a carefully tailored course of study which will allow them to complete their B.S.Ed. degree while they also begin the coursework toward their M.S.
To apply, students must have a minimum 3.25 grade point average, and must submit two reference letters and a copy of their transcript to the Health and Sport Sciences department. Each applicant will complete an interview with the graduate academic coordinator in health and sport sciences.
Students must also apply to the Graduate School for the accelerated B.S.Ed./M.S. program, which allows them to take graduate courses in health and sport science. To continue in the program past the B.S.Ed., students must apply for full admission into the Graduate School and into the Health and Sport Sciences department's M.S. program.
Only in ABM programs, up to 9 hours of graduate course work may be applied to both the undergraduate and graduate programs. However, any graduate coursework will not apply to undergraduate GPA.
