MBA 564 - Intercollegiate Athletics in Higher Education

(3 credits)
This course is designed for college administrators and coaches from all disciplines with the intent of enhancing the understanding of the role of intercollegiate athletics in higher education. Through an in-depth consideration of the history, present, and future of sport within the context of colleges and universities, students are prepared to work effectively with athletics administrators, coaches, and student-athletes in the campus environment. Class participants will examine the role intercollegiate athletics plays within the higher education community and the larger society. The reasons for the often-perceived divide between the academics and athletics “sides” of campus is examined, as well as ethical issues facing sports in higher education today.
