The worldwide increase in recreational sports and fitness participation, coupled with society’s growing concern over healthy lifestyles, has created a need within the sports and recreation industry for additional trained management professionals possessing a wide variety of skills. The Sports Management minor at Dominican University of California addresses this need.
