Sport Management, Fast Track Program (5-Year B.Sc./M.P.S. Degree Program)

Sport Management


The combined Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.) and Master of Professional Studies (M.P.S.) fast track program in the Division of Sport Management offers highly-motivated students the opportunity to complete both undergraduate and graduate degrees in five years of full-time study.

Accepted fast track students may enroll in up to four approved graduate courses during their junior and/or senior years, while still working toward earning their undergraduate degree. These graduate courses count toward both degrees, saving students time and money as they pursue their educational goals.

This five-year program is open to undergraduate Sport Management majors who maintain a 3.00 overall GPA and a 3.25 GPA in the Sport Management major. Students with GPAs below either benchmark may still apply to the program, however, additional activities documenting a student’s ability to succeed in the fast track program may also be required.

The graduate-level credits may be applied to both degrees if: 

  • The student maintains the required minimum undergraduate indices of: 3.25 in the major and 3.00 cumulative overall
  • The student receives a minimum grade of “B” in the graduate-level coursework 
  • The student immediately matriculates into the indicated master’s program upon completing the bachelor’s degree. Should a student decide to leave SJU and return, these graduate credits will not apply to the graduate degree.
