Program Description


If your calling leads you to the world of sports, a degree in Sport Administration will prepare you for leadership at almost any level of the industry. But at Samford University, it’s so much more than that. 

In addition to giving you the knowledge and experience you need to excel on the business side of sports, we see the degree as a kingdom calling—an opportunity to serve as a Gospel witness in the sports world. We prepare students for sport industry leadership positions in: intercollegiate athletic administration, professional sports, facility and event operations, marketing and public relations, law, interscholastic athletic administration, sport business and related fields. Every course is grounded in leadership skills such as punctuality, problem solving, professional speaking and intentionality, and the heartbeat of the program is to teach students how to use their leadership positions as platforms to share the Gospel with others.
