    Seattle University offers a master’s level sport management degree (Master’s degree in Sport Administration and Leadership - MSAL) and a joint JD/MSAL degree with the Law School. We are determined to provide an education that is both immediately applicable to sport management careers and yet is still driven by advances in theory across a wide variety of disciplines. If you are interested in being a leader in the sport management field, critically analyzing complex problems, and using theory and research to identify and solve issues for sport organizations, then we are one of your best options.  
    We are committed to providing an excellent and stimulating learning experience to future leaders in the sport management field. As a university that values the intellectual skills fostered by the Jesuit tradition, students will acquire an understanding of profits as well as people, learning to function as paradigm changers in their teams or organizations.

    Please take some time and investigate our MSAL program by perusing the different sections of our website. If you have any questions, please contact me.
