The Sports Medicine: Administration minor focuses on administrative and academic information and skills for students who want to enter into sports medicine administration positions in hospitals, clinics, physician offices and academic research.
The minor's curriculum provides the common skills, techniques and knowledge associated with administrative responsibilities in medical and health care, as well as academic careers, including, but not limited to, evidence-based research, medical and healthcare ethics and administration in health care.
Admission to a minor is open to students declared in a bachelor’s degree, the A.A.B. or A.A.S. degree or the A.T.S. degree (not Individualized Program major). Students declared only in the A.A. or A.S. degree or the A.T.S. degree in Individualized Program may not declare a minor. Students may not pursue a minor and a major in the same discipline.
To declare this minor, students must have attempted a minimum 12 credit hours at Kent State and earned a minimum 2.000 overall Kent State GPA. Students who have not attempted 12 credit hours at Kent State will be evaluated for admission based on their high school GPA for new students or transfer GPA for transfer students. Transfer students who have not attempted 12 credit hours of college-level coursework at Kent State and/or other institutions will be evaluated based on both their high school GPA and college GPA.
