Interested in the scholarly study of sport or in preparing for a sport-related career?
If so, the Sport Studies program at Reinhardt University might be just the degree option for you. In our program, students study sport from a broad, cultural perspective and also prepare themselves for a variety of career opportunities in sport-related fields. As a Sport Studies major, you might find yourself discussing the role of sport in American society one week, and sitting in the dugout at Turner Field as part of a class tour the next. A unique aspect of the Sport Studies program is an extensive internship requirement that allows students to earn academic credit while gaining real-world experience.
