Program Overview


A diploma in Sport and Leisure Management is a great foundation for a career in community development, recreation programming, facility management, athletic administration, fitness coordination and so much more. With three areas of specialization, you have the opportunity to concentrate on the career pathway that suits your interest.

Choose from:

Sport and Recreation Management

Courses in community development, sport event tourism, marketing, public relations, entrepreneurship, leadership, and program design prepare you for a career on the business side of the recreation industry.

Sport and Leisure Studies

In addition to the core leadership and program development courses required of every Sport and Leisure Management student, you choose eight electives to design a program unique to your career objectives.

Kinesiology

Courses in anatomy and physiology, nutrition, sport psychology, physical conditioning, and athletic therapy are combined with business management courses to prepare you for working directly with clients, managing fitness programs and helping prevent injury.

Note: Some program activities, such as internship and volunteering, may require you to complete a Criminal Record Check (Vulnerable Sector) with no findings of guilt.

Hit the Field


During the summer between years one and two, you’ll complete a minimum 250-hour paid internship in an environment related to your field of study. We will work with you to help find the right employment, however, ultimately it is your responsibility.
