Why Sport & Leisure Management?

The demand for business professionals in the athletic world continues to expand as an area of impact on society.

Choose between a Bachelor of Human Kinetics (BHK) with a stream focus in Sport and Leisure Management or a Bachelor of Arts (BA) in Sport and Leisure Management, which offers courses in public relations, communication and advanced marketing.

A community internship component gives students the opportunity to experience professional options available upon graduation. Organizations we have worked with in the past include: Athletes In Action, BC Lions, Langley Chiefs, Langley Sportsplex, Langley Twin Rinks, Vancouver Canucks and the Vancouver Giants.

Students taking the BA in Sport and Leisure Management are required to take 6 semester hours of internship experience, while students in the BHK stream may choose to do a 3 semester hour internship as part of the required leadership credits needed.
