This certificate is a 12-semester-hour program designed to provide current graduate students and working professionals with a set of courses focused on specific areas of college athletics administration, and will enhance and further a student’s understanding of the current landscape within this area. This certificate is suggested for students concurrently pursuing graduate or post-baccalaureate studies in sport management, kinesiology and physical education, athletic training, business, higher education and student affairs, and law. However, students from any graduate major at Northern Illinois University, any other acceptable graduate degree-granting institution, or a student-at-large are eligible to apply for and obtain this certificate. Moreover, these courses partially fulfill the educational requirements of, and can be applied towards completion of, the M.S. in Sport Management at NIU (see M.S. Sport Management degree requirements in the Graduate Catalog). If applicable, some or all Certificate of Graduate Study in Sport Management courses may be counted toward students’ graduate degree requirements in their respective departments. Students presently enrolled in the M.S. in Sport Management program at NIU are eligible to obtain this certificate.

Students wishing to pursue this certificate must be accepted into the Graduate School (as either a degree-seeking student or a student-at-large), formally file an enrollment application with the certificate coordinator before completion of 9 semester hours of course work related to this certificate, develop a plan of study approved by the certificate coordinator, maintain a cumulative 3.00 grade point average or better in all certificate courses, and complete all certificate coursework within six calendar years.
