Whether you’re looking at coaching, management, finance, psychology or nutrition, studying abroad as a sports study major will greatly enhance your education. Though the majority of study abroad students are not sports study majors, it is definitely no exception. You will learn a new way of thinking, coaching, managing and playing, and gain experience invaluable to you in the future. Lastly, national pride for a sport is generally extremely passionate, meaning, you gain new competitive friendships (and a few rivalries along the way) that will undoubtedly last a very long time.

The sports study major has a huge list of different options on its own. Many go into nutrition for athletes, journalism, broadcasting, coaching and management. It is studied through the lens of history, psychology and sociology. Some of the more coveted jobs in sports include General Manager of a professional team and Head Coach.
