DELETION OF THE PRE-SPORT MANAGEMENT MAJOR IN THE
GENERAL INFORMATION CATALOG, 2010-2011


NAME OF DEGREE PROGRAM(S): This change does not involve a degree program. The College of Education is requesting that the Pre-Sport Management major code be deleted.

EXPLAIN CHANGE(S) TO DEGREE PROGRAM:
The Pre-Sport Management major code is a holding place for students who want to apply to the Sport Management major. It is listed in the General Information Catalog in the Admissions section under Additional Requirements and Restrictions for Some Freshman and Transfer Applicants. In the College of Education section it states, “The College of Education restricts admission to all majors in the Department of Kinesiology and Health Education, including the athletic training and sport management majors. An applicant who plans to enter one of these two programs should apply for admission to the University as a pre–athletic training or pre–sport management student. He or she may apply for admission to the major after completing a series of prerequisite courses. Admission to the major is based on the student’s performance, completion of the required coursework, and evidence of commitment to the field.”

Indicate pages in the general information catalog where changes will be made. pages 30-31

GIVE A DETAILED RATIONALE FOR CHANGE(S):
This major code was established several years ago in an effort to track the number of students who might be applying to the Sport Management major. However, students can also apply to the major from any major/college on campus, so we are not accurately reflecting how many students are interested in the Sport Management major. In addition, students who do declare a Pre-Sport Management major feel that they should be guaranteed admission to the major once they have completed the prerequisite coursework, despite efforts to advise them otherwise. A Pre-Sport Management major has no better chance of being accepted to the major than any other applicant.

SCOPE OF THE PROPOSED CHANGE(S):
Does this proposal impact other colleges/schools? If yes, then how? No.
If yes, have the other colleges/schools been informed of the proposed changes? If so, please indicate their responses: N/A

Does this proposal involve changes to the core curriculum or other basic education requirements (42-hour core, signature courses, flags)? If yes, please explain: No.
If yes, has the School of Undergraduate Studies been informed of the proposed changes? If so, please indicate their response: N/A

Will this proposal change the number of required hours for degree completion? If yes, please explain. No.


COLLEGE/SCHOOL APPROVAL PROCESS:
Department Approval Date: February 17, 2010
College Approval Date: March 17, 2010
Dean Approval Date: March 24, 2010
