Campus Learning

 

The Bachelor of Science in Sports Management is targeted at those wishing to build a career in Sport Management, Sport and Recreation Management, Local Government Recreation Management, Facility Management, Sports Marketing, Sport Promotion and Sponsorship, Sport Administration, Event Management, Sport Development or Sport Education at secondary and tertiary level. The programme carefully combines theoretical and practical learning through pedagogical approaches and workrelated learning to ensure the production of graduates with both the knowledge and the skills to succeed in the cutthroat sport sector of Botswana and throughout the world.

Programme details: The programme consists of core (required) and elective modules as detailed below. Some modules may have pre-requisites (i.e. may require the student to pass another module or set of modules first). Some modules may be co-requisite (i.e. such modules are required to be taken together). The number at the end of the module in parenthesis indicates the credit load of the module. 1 credit is equal to 10 hours of learning (guided, in-class and independent combined); therefore a 10-credit module requires on average 100 hours of learning from the student.
