Hartwick College has announced the addition of a new sport management major

“The sport management major is one more way we’re continuing to build on our legacy of student-athletes,” said Associate Professor Pauline Stamp, program coordinator for sport management and chair of the Social and Behavioral Sciences Division. “We’re preparing students who are passionate about athletics and wellness for the rapidly growing, multi-dimensional industry of sport.”

Students enrolling in the sport management major this fall will study team and athlete management, marketing, analytics and budgeting, and contracts and event planning. Courses will be taught by Hartwick’s business faculty, athletic staff members, and working industry professionals.
