Comprehensive Examination

A comprehensive examination is required for all students seeking the Master of Arts in Sport and Fitness Administration degree, except for those planning on completing a research-based thesis. Upon approval by the student’s faculty advisor, the comprehensive examination may be taken at any time after eighteen hours of required coursework is completed. A student must be enrolled in coursework during the semester in which the examination is to be taken.

The comprehensive examination is comprised of 4 questions. Two questions are derived from the material covered in the Core: PEP 6305 and either PEP 6306, PEP 7303 or PEP 7312. The remaining two questions are derived from the Program Area Emphasis in consultation with faculty advisor. The student must pass the comprehensive examination satisfactorily before the Master of Arts in Sport and Fitness Administration degree is awarded.
