PROPOSED CHANGES TO THE SPORT MANAGEMENT DEGREE PROGRAM IN THE COLLEGE OF EDUCATION SECTION IN THE UNDERGRADUATE CATALOG, 2014-2016


Type of Change Academic Change
  1. IF THE ANSWER TO ANY OF THE FOLLOWING QUESTIONS IS YES, THE COLLEGE MUST CONSULT NEAL ARMSTRONG WHO WILL DETERMINE WHETHER SACS-COC APPROVAL IS NEEDED.
    • Is this a new degree program? No
    • Does the program offer courses that will be taught off campus? No
    • Will courses in this program be delivered electronically? No

  2. EXPLAIN CHANGE TO DEGREE PROGRAM AND GIVE A DETAILED RATIONALE FOR EACH INDIVIDUAL CHANGE:
    A. Under “Prescribed Work” #1, change “two courses with a writing flag” to “three” courses.
    Rationale: Aligns with the required flags for 2014-16 catalog.
    B. Under “Prescribed Work” #5, delete the statement “Three semester hours of course work that carries a Global Cultures Flag.”
    Rationale:
    All statements about flags are being included in the Core Curriculum area of our degrees.
    C. Delete KIN 316 Structure & Organization of Sport Programs and KIN 356 Revenue & Budgeting in Sport from the Sport Management cognate. Add a newly created KIN 312 topic, The Sport Industry in America, to the cognate. 
    Rationale: KIN 316 will be eliminated due to its redundancy with the core course KIN 312M Management of Physical Activity/Sport Programs.  KIN 356 is being eliminated due a change in teaching loads and focus of the program.  Adding the new KIN 312 Topic #5 class allows us to maintain our focus on all the new trends in the sport industry.
    D. Add option to Internship requirement (KIN 628) to allow students to take KIN 327L Fieldwork – Sport Management plus a three-hour KIN/HED elective or KIN 628 Fieldwork in Sport Management.
    Rationale: This change gives students an option on how they choose to complete their internship requirement.  Some students have taken other KIN/HED classes prior to entering the Sport Management major, which would fall to unused electives.  Adding the KIN 327L option allows three hours of those classes to count as required courses in the major.

  3. SCOPE OF THE PROPOSED CHANGE(S):
    a. Does this proposal impact other colleges/schools? If yes, then how?
    If yes, then how?
