“Just as with the announcement of our new online Christian Thought and Business Administration programs, we are extremely excited to now offer our Sports Management degree program virtually for those that cannot attend face-to-face on the Sterling College Campus. The bachelor’s degree opens new doors to online students who wish to pursue a degree within the field, paired with one of the lowest online tuition rates in the country, as well as intertwining that experience within a Christian worldview,” said Dr. Ken Brown, vice president for academic affairs and dean of the College. 

Sterling’s new program in Sports Management features a core curriculum of 43 credit hours and an additional 23 credit hours in the Collegiate, Professional, or Corporate Sport Administration concentration. The program features classes including Governance of Sport, Sport in Society, Sport Public Relations, Sport Economics, Sport Finance, Sport Facility Management and more. 

“The sport industry is a continually growing field with opportunities at all levels. Offering this degree online allows students interested in pursuing a career in sport an affordable way to build the required skill sets for a successful career. Students will also develop additional skills that will enable them to make a Kingdom impact as they develop the ability to be light and salt in a particularly secular field,” said Hans Nickel, assistant professor of sports management.
