As a Sport Management major, classes would range from Intro to Management to studying Sport Law and Ethics. I felt that I had a wide range of options within this major, both in the business and sport professions. The professors had such a passion for the subjects they taught and they cared about each student personally, which is something I really appreciated. I came into this major because I love the world of sports, and am grateful to have learned the wide range of possibilities I have to build a career in something that I love.
