Sport Management (minor)

Sport Management Minor

The Sport Management minor is available to those undergraduate students who are business majors.  It provides an introduction to the business side of sports for those students who may want a career in the sport industry.  For additional information, please contact Dr. Shawn O'Rourke at @email.


To receive a minor, a student must complete at least 9 credit hours of coursework distinct from their major(s) and from other minors, and students must complete more than 50% of the coursework required for the minor at Canisius. Please note that “ancillary/supporting” courses required for a major may still count as distinct courses as long as the remaining coursework still meets the 30 credit-hours required for a major. For more information about minor policies, please see the Declaring Majors and Minors page in the catalog.
