One undergraduate course in Management Theory - Equivalent to MAN 320F at UT Austin One undergraduate course in Marketing Principles - Equivalent to MKT 320F at UT Austin Two of the following undergraduate courses: Sport Ethics - Equivalent to KIN UT Austin Sport Philosophy - Equivalent to KIN UT Austin Sport Law - Equivalent to KIN UT Austin Sport Sociology - Equivalent to KIN UT Austin Sport History - Equivalent to KIN UT Austin Social Psychology of Sport - Equivalent to KIN UT Austin Sport Economics - Equivalent to KIN 395 UT Austin Students may be admitted without these courses provided they complete them successfully during the first year in the program. Nevertheless, it is recommended that any deficiencies be completed prior to entering the program. These competencies may be completed by taking graduate or undergraduate classes. It is typically possible to complete the core competencies during the summer prior to beginning the program. All courses must be taken for a letter grade to fulfill the competency area requirement. Moreover, undergraduate core competencies are in addition to the required courses in the Ph.D. program and may not be counted in the program of Ph.D. work. Establishment of Program of Study Sport management faculty will review the student s prior course work and research experience and, in conjunction with the student, establish a program of study including course work within and outside the department. Under the leadership of the student s adviser, sport management faculty will monitor the student s progress. The Graduate Studies Committee shall have approved the program of study no later than the end of the student s second year in residence. Student Evaluation Students must make satisfactory progress and will be evaluated for satisfactory progress each year, especially regarding incompletes in course work, GPA, and research involvement. Ph.D. students are required to enroll in a minimum of nine hours of coursework each long semester. 1. Incompletes. Graduate students are expected to complete courses within the time frame of the semester. In unusual cases where this semester framework is not in the best interest of the student, the professor may report the symbol X (incomplete) in place of a grade. The student must then complete the course requirements and the instructor must report a final grade by the end of the grade reporting period in the student s next long-session semester of enrollment. If this deadline is not met, the symbol X is converted to the symbol I (permanent incomplete). The symbol I cannot be converted to a grade. The GSC considers two or more grades of incomplete including permanent incompletes as unsatisfactory progress. (TAs, GRAs, etc., may acquire no more than two grades of X; or one grade of X and one I. They cannot have two or more grades of I.)

9 SPORT MANAGEMENT 7 2. GPA. The student is expected to maintain the minimum GPA of 3.0 required by the Graduate School. This GPA pertains to course work within the major department, to course work outside of the department, and also to the overall combined GPA. 3. Research Involvement. It is the responsibility of the student to meet with the academic adviser to be certain that all research expectations are made clear. Students who are not actively involved in research will be considered as not making satisfactory progress. Program Requirements Students are required to demonstrate basic competence in sport management, as well as their chosen cognate area (marketing, management, educational administration, public policy, etc.). This competency will be demonstrated by obtaining an average grade of B or higher in all course work, successful completion of the doctoral comprehensive examination, and successful completion of the dissertation.

Concentration - In addition to Group A, B, or C (21 hrs) Under the leadership of the student s advisor and with the approval of the sport management faculty, students have the opportunity to design a course of study that focuses on their research interests. This will consist of from 3-9 hours of courses selected from within the Department plus from hours of organized courses from outside the Department. A minimum of 21 hours in total is required. E. Student Research Depending upon the student s interests and background, the program of study must include research experience with a minimum of six hours of directed research and a minimum of 18 hours of dissertation (KIN 999r & 999w) ADVANCEMENT TO CANDIDACY Before a student can be advanced to doctoral candidacy, the student must have successfully completed a research project. A master s thesis that has been accepted by an accredited college/ university will serve as evidence that the student has completed the required research project. A student who did not complete a master s thesis must present completed research to the sport management faculty for approval before being advanced to doctoral candidacy. To be approved, the project must be deemed by the faculty to be equivalent in content and quality to a master s thesis. A research study published by the student as first author in a peerreviewed journal would be deemed to meet that standard. If the preliminary research report has been completed, successful candidates are advanced to doctoral candidacy after completion of the following: 1. The student has passed the comprehensive examination. The examination consists of both written and oral sections. The written section will include a general component dealing with issues in sport management, as well as a specialized component emphasizing the student s area of concentration. The written section of the examination must be successfully completed prior to the oral section. The oral section is scheduled shortly after the written examination. The written and oral sections of the comprehensive examination, if not successfully completed, may be repeated only once. 2. Upon successful completion of the comprehensive examination, the student can be advanced to doctoral candidacy. The student and the supervising professor should recommend to the graduate adviser the names of five faculty

11 SPORT MANAGEMENT 9 who they would like to have appointed to the dissertation committee. The student should contact the graduate coordinator for assistance in completing the necessary paperwork for advancement to candidacy. Only after the student has been advanced to candidacy and has the approval of the supervising professor, will the student be permitted to register for dissertation hours. Dissertation Under the supervision of the Supervising Professor and the Dissertation Committee, the student will prepare a written dissertation proposal and make an oral presentation of it to the GSC, the Dissertation Committee, and other interested persons. Interested students, faculty and especially GSC members are encouraged to attend the proposal presentation; however, a quorum of the GSC is not required. The proposal will include an appropriate literature survey, extensive methodology, and preliminary results. The proposal is normally presented toward the end of the student s third year of doctoral study. The dissertation is required of all candidates and must be an original contribution to scholarship based on independent research in the major area. Writing of the dissertation will be supervised by the Dissertation Committee, which is appointed by the Graduate Dean. The five member Dissertation Committee will include the supervising professor and two to three other members from the sport management faculty. Once the Dissertation Committee is appointed, the Graduate Studies Committee requires the committee to meet at least once a semester to review the student s progress. Following the meeting, a progress report must be filed with the graduate adviser. It is the responsibility of the supervising professor to ensure that these requirements are fulfilled. Final Oral Examination The candidate must present a formal seminar on the dissertation research as a part of the final oral examination. All interested faculty members and graduate students will be encouraged to attend the formal seminar and to ask questions about the candidate s research. Evaluation of the candidate s performance will be decided by members of the Dissertation Committee. It is the responsibility of the student and supervising professor to schedule the formal seminar through the office of the graduate adviser. Time Limits All course work to be included in the program of study must at the time of admission to candidacy have been taken within the previous six years. Once advanced to candidacy, the doctoral program must be reviewed by the Graduate Studies Committee if the degree has not been completed within three years from the date of admission to candidacy. At this time, the Graduate Studies Committee may recommend additional course work, further examinations, or termination of candidacy. The program of study is also subject to review by the Graduate Dean.

Graduate Portfolio Programs: A Unique Opportunity The University of Texas offers one of the world s largest and most advanced set of opportunities to obtain advanced training and specialist skills. In order to assist students to build their portfolio of expertise by capitalizing on the university s diverse offerings, the university has created a unique set of opportunities called graduate portfolio programs. These are optional opportunities for students to enhance the qualifications they obtain during their graduate study. For each portfolio program, faculty who share an interest are brought together from throughout the university to help students pursue specialist qualifications. Students can complete a portfolio by taking its required courses as part of their normal curriculum - that is, without having to add courses to their degree plan. Their portfolio qualification is noted on their transcript. The university currently offers 22 graduate portfolio programs. Several have been particularly popular among sport management students. For more information about graduate portfolio programs, including a list and description of current programs, go to: Labs The UT Sport Development Laboratory (SDL) conducts research to advance the development of sport and sport systems, including athletes and participants of all ages and stages of development, as well as supporting personnel and organizations. The lab works with a diverse array of sport organizations locally, nationally, and internationally. Recent work has studied consumer behavior in the context of select soccer, athlete advancement via USA Triathlon s elite development systems, and the differential impacts of varying sport contexts on the lives and well-being of participants and their families around the world. Current work examines the capacity of video gaming to develop athletes strategic thinking, and the impact of variations in sport systems on the development of creativity. The lab is equipped with state of the art eye-tracking capabilities, video analysis and gaming equipment, implicit association testing capability, as well as advanced qualitative and quantitative analysis software. The Sport and Life Quality Laboratory (SLQ) plays an integral role in the work of the University of Texas Sport Management Program. It is dedicated to researching, disseminating, and advancing knowledge related to how individual, family,

13 community, and work lives within and surrounding sport can be enhanced. Research organized through the SLQ has had a broad impact. Projects thus far have spanned four continents and focused on a wide variety of sport settings and life quality issues. These have included strengthening the family unit, building community, and improving the work environment. Current work focuses on improving the sense of community in youth and college environments and on improving the quality of family functioning for sport participants. The H.J.
