Bachelor of Science – Sport Management Studies with a Concentration in Wellness and Fitness – 120 credits

The sport management studies program has three distinctive tracks: sport management, professional golf management, and wellness and fitness.

The sport management studies program is open to any student who has been admitted to California University of Pennsylvania.

Once a student matriculates in the sport management studies program, the student must maintain the following:

  • Students in the wellness and fitness program must maintain a 2.50 cumulative grade-point average; and

  • A student earning a D in a SPT, HSC, ATE or FIT major specific course must repeat this class.

The course sequence is designed so that it does not overwhelm our busy students. In most semesters, students will not be required to take more than two courses at once (6 or 7 credits each term), allowing students to focus time and energy on successful completion of each course. Fall and spring semesters include two eight-week terms each. The summer includes two five-week terms or one 10-week term.

Students pursuing the program will be prepared to sit for a certification in personal training offered by the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM). This undergraduate program was created based on Cal U's extremely successful online graduate programs in wellness and fitness, performance enhancement, rehabilitation science, sport psychology, and wellness coaching. Enrollment is limited, so if you are interested in the program, please email us immediately at bsfitness@calu.edu and specify that you are interested in the Bachelor of Science in Sport Management: Wellness and Fitness track.

Transfer credits are accepted, so students who have previous college coursework will be able to apply appropriate credits toward their Cal U degree. For students who do not have any college credits, all 120 credits of the program will be available in a 100 percent online format via the Internet.

The following sequence is one of three potential sequences for this program. The program has different matriculation dates necessitating this need. Visit our website at www.calu.edu/academics/online-programs/wellness-fitness to determine which sequence best fits your situation.
