Physical Education/Athletic Administration Programs

The field of athletic administration offers a wide range of career opportunities, including athletic educators, sport facility and arena management, working with professional sport organizations, and managerial positions in sporting goods companies, resorts, private clubs, camps, and sport marketing organizations. Athletic director programs integrate so many business principles that some 4-year degree programs enable students to earn business minors. Most high school or college athletic director jobs require bachelor's degrees in sports management or education.
