Launched in 2002 with a $1 million anonymous donation, the Sports Communication Certificate program provides courses about sports and the media, offers internships and scholarships for students, and brings visiting lecturers to the school.
A certificate, a concentration of three or more courses in a related field of study, is noted on a student's transcript. A limited number of students will be admitted into the program and will be guaranteed a seat in each of the three required courses: "MEJO 376: Sports Marketing and Advertising," "MEJO 377: Sports Communication" and "MEJO 476: Ethical Issues and Sports Communication."
Students not admitted are still welcome to take the sports communication courses. They may also complete the certificate program. The formal admission simply gives admitted students priority getting into the classes.
