The bachelors degree in the Sport & Fitness Management Department offers academic preparation in the specialized areas of:

  • Sport Management
  • Physical Education
  • Recreation Administration
  • Health & Fitness Management
  • Sport Communication

The concentration in Sport Management emphasizes the practical and academic experiences necessary to be successful in the sport industry. Sport managers must have a fundamental understanding of the applications of business and in-depth knowledge of the complexities of the sport world.

The Physical Education concentration is designed to prepare students for a career in the classroom teaching physical education. The Physical Education concentration provides the student an opportunity to earn a State of Connecticut Coaching Certification; however, the degree program does not lead to CT Teaching Certification. Students interested in nonschool programs such as those offered at the YMCA, Boys and Girls Clubs, YWCA and Municipal Recreation Departments are prepared by studying Recreation Administration. This concentration prepares well-rounded and enthusiastic graduates dedicated to positively impacting the lives of youths. Health and Fitness prepares those students concentrating on careers in personal training, strength and conditioning, and sport rehabilitation delivered by fitness centers, corporate wellness programs, or sport medicine facilities. For those interested in pursuing sport media careers in television, radio, or print industries, the concentration in Sport Communications provides preparation in both sport and communication media techniques.

As a student in one of these programs, you would participate in Mitchell’s outstanding internship program. A student will complete a sophomore and senior level internship. You can elect to do your internship in a wide variety of settings ranging from professional sports teams, school athletic programs, parks and recreation programs, sporting goods companies, fitness facilities and more.

A full range of opportunities exist in the Sport and Fitness area including executive-level positions requiring strong management and problem-solving capabilities. Mitchell’s Sport & Fitness Management Department will prepare you to meet the contemporary and future needs of the sport, physical education, fitness and recreation fields.

A few words on fit.


"Fit” is the modern buzzword of the college search process. And frankly, rightly so. As you consider your college experience, we encourage you to look for a place that feels right. It’s also a good idea to make a list of the qualities and characteristics that make a college and you a winning combination.


If you are looking for a college that: 


  • Gets to know and understand each student as a uniquely talented individual

  • Identifies potential and encourages students in very intentional ways

  • Fosters growth in each student, giving them a foundation for life and career success

  • Is small enough to deliver on the promise of a personalized experience

  • Goes beyond “career services” and offers a progressive 4-year career development model, partnering with local businesses and nonprofits for professional experience

  • Promotes an inclusive culture that encourages students to experiment in new clubs and activities

  • Is nationally recognized for its academic support systems, from professional content tutors (not students) to proven comprehensive support for students with learning differences

  • Connects students to service opportunities that impact their world

  • Is in a location that offers access to New England’s natural places and some of America’s greatest cities




…Mitchell College delivers in a powerful way.
