You’ll experience the best of both worlds when it comes to earning a bachelor or master’s degree in sport at Syracuse University Falk College. We are large enough to be able to offer incredible resources, experiences and contacts, yet small enough to allow you to be part of a supportive and nurturing community of faculty, staff, students and alumni.

As a D-1 institution, our facilities are an important part of who we are. We are home to the Carrier Dome, a 50,000+ domed stadium, the Carmelo K.

And we have an impressive network of alumni and sport and entertainment industry professionals eager to work with our students, people like David B. Falk (F.A.M.E.), Brandon Steiner (Steiner Sports), Mike Tirico and Laurie Orlando (ESPN) , and Patti-Kleinman-Fallick (MLB Network), to name just a few of our Advisory Board members. Building skills and knowledge while you build a network is why our alumni are so successful.

Hisung Nam (Benjamin) (Graduate Student, Syracuse University David B. Falk College)

I do not approach sports as a fan, but as a business person. I would like to work in community relations for a professional sports league and I’ve been applying to many different sports teams for my summer internship. I hope to work and gain experience in MLB, MLS and the NBA. When I was looking for a Master's program in Sport, I visited the SU campus and loved the atmosphere. Syracuse University is one of the best private universities in NY with a strong D-1 athletic department. I like that the faculty and internship coordinators always have time to mentor me, plus they’re always inviting in industry professionals to campus so we can build contacts in the field even before we graduate.
