Biography

Dr. Taylor  developed the Master of Science in sport management studies program in 2004 and has served as program director since that time. He is proud of the program and the students who have made it a success. Based on their feedback, a new intercollegiate athletic administration track was added last summer, and a third option in sports counseling will begin in summer 2010. The MS in sport management studies program is arguably one of the most successful online programs, not only in the United States, but also globally.
