First, you must complete the Certification in Sports Management to proceed.
To ACCESS YOUR COURSE go to http://ce.ussa.edu/m2/ and look for the Login panel at the top right hand corner of the webpage. Scroll down to the box Current Courses and the courses that you registered for will be inside that box. Select the course you want to work on to open.
Secondly, you need to contact the Continuing Education office by email to declare your intention to enroll in the Sports Diploma program. Please note that a $100 administrative fee will be required to enroll.
Third, you must manually enroll into two additional courses. You may choose 2 of the 3 courses below:
CEM 367 Olympic Culture
An examination of the structure, history and culture of the Olympics and the Olympic movement.
CEM 400 Leadership Principles in Sports
This course teaches concepts, principles, and skills of leadership for managers in the sports industry who must influence others to get things done. Styles of successful sport coaches and managers will be examined and analyzed in the context of their times and settings.
CEM 422 Structure and Function of Sports
An analysis of professional and amateur sport organizations from a philosophical, historical and operational perspective.
And lastly, when the two additional courses have been completed, the student will be referred to the Mentorship Office; to complete the Sports Diploma Program students are required to complete a 200 contact hour mentorship.
Students should read the Mentorship Handbook for information regarding the requirements and guidelines of the mentorship program.
Briefly, the student selects a mentor and mentorship site and then will submit the necessary paperwork and will receive approvals. At that time, the Mentorship Office will notify the Department of Continuing Education that the student is approved for registration and charged for their mentorship.
Upon completion of all mentorship requirements, the Mentorship Office will notify the Department of Continuing Education of the final mentorship grade. After the grade is recorded, the Sports Diploma will be issued.
