The College of Law and the Department of Sport Management joint-degree program in law and sport management, J.D./M.S. in Sport Management, permit the completion of both degrees concurrently. Current law students must meet with and submit all documents for admission to the College of Law Joint-Degree Coordinator before July 1st of their first year of law school. The College of Law Joint-Degree Program Coordinator will then submit their completed packet to the College of Law and the Department of Sport Management for approval. Any student who has completed M.S. in Sport Management coursework prior to matriculating to the College of Law, or who wishes to apply for the joint-degree following the completion of their first year of law school, must obtain prior written approval from the College of Law before applying for the joint-degree.
Applicants to the M.S. in Sport Management program must have a bachelor’s degree from a regionally accredited college or university and are expected to score at or above the 42nd percentile on the verbal and at or above the 36th percentile on the quantitative portions of the GRE. The results from the writing portion will also be assessed. The Department of Sport Management will waive the GRE requirement for current College of Law students.
