Sports Science Minor

A minor in Sports Science can greatly enhance a student’s qualifications across the disciplines of physical therapy, education, radiologic technology, biology, psychology and sociology.

Gaining a working knowledge of the foundation of sports science will complement these majors well and prepare students for success in their chosen career fields.

Consider these program combinations for the Sports Science Minor:

  • Psychology majors interested in sports psychology;
  • Pre-Medical students interested in orthopedics;
  • Radiologic Technology students interested in a better working knowledge of the human body.
