Sport Management Major

Sport Management majors at York College of Pennsylvania spend their first four semesters gaining hands-on experience through practicums. Only York students have the opportunity to do so in the Grumbacher Sport and Fitness Center, an award-winning facility that stands out as one of the best on the East Coast. The program offers a broad range of courses to prepare students for a variety of careers and a sequence of elective courses that allows students to specialize in one particular area. York’s signature Sport Management networking event, Professional Day, as well as summer internships and a capstone work experience, put York’s sport management students directly in front of potential employers.
