WHEN the spotlights dim before an unforgettable show, or the overheads come up on a dramatic playoff game, your work is on full display. You’ve helped create an experience that will energize, thrill and captivate the crowd. It’s all yours.
Whether you’re interested in venue management or game ops, that experience can be yours. The same is true if your passion is to promote a music tour, oversee community relations for a big city entertainment facility or work with the brain trust of a professional sports team. The possibilities are that varied with a JWU Sports, Entertainment, Event — Management degree. Whatever pathway you choose, at the end of the day you’ll be a culture creator, designing moments and shaping experiences that audiences will cherish for a lifetime.
In our program, you’ll take foundational courses during your first year, giving you both the basics and the time to explore your choice of specialization: Sports Management, Live Entertainment Management, or Event Management (SEEM). Then, you’ll get to experience a term-long internship or two under the direction of an industry professional. Here, you’ll build your resume and expand contacts in the profession. Back in class, you’ll have the JWU advantage of studying with highly-qualified faculty who have real experience in their industries. Along the way, participate in a directed experiential education project with fellow classmates, study abroad, pick up a minor field of study, or help manage the annual, student-run SEEM Leadership Conference on campus.
Whether you crave the pace and action of a live event in a sold-out stadium, or the more personal interaction of a seasoned guest relations manager, JWU’s SEEM programs can help you build that life.
This program is available in Providence, Charlotte, Denver, North Miami and Online. To view a full course listing for each on-campus location, see the JWU Catalog links below.
