Common coursework

Research suggests that LLC students who participate in shared courses are more engaged with their academics and satisfied with their college experience.

As part of your participation in the Sport and Recreation Management LLC, students will be enrolled in SRM:1060, Contemporary Issues in Sport. Topics covered in the common course are tailored to the sport industry and the sport work environment. This course will also count toward graduation requirements.

In addition to lecture classes, students participate in weekly discussion groups, forming a sense of community around the participation in this course.
