Sport Industry (SI) prepares students for supervisory, leadership, and administrative positions in the sport and leisure industry and/or graduate programs in sport humanities, sport management and sport law.

SI combines social science and humanities disciplines to provide students with the needed theory and practice for entrance into the sport and leisure industry. SI informs students of the constantly changing themes, issues, and practices that the industry confronts. Students comprehend the social, economic, political, and legal issues that contour and shape the development of the industry. They will learn from various people’s exploration and experience in the sport and leisure. The major explores the connections of sport and exercise to the larger society, its historical settings and meanings, its ethical underpinnings, and its racial, gender, and social class composition.

At The Ohio State University, Sport Management is only offered as a graduate degree, as it is offered for many accredited universities. Therefore, the newly designed Sport Industry track was designed to give students excellent preparation for a career in the sport industry and prepare them for success in sport management, humanities, and law graduate programs. Students develop critical thinking and writing skills in this track, making them marketable for employers.
