Question
I am Wanting to get a major in Sports Administration and minor in game and media design.What jobs could i do with those degrees?

Answer
My area of expertise for ALLExperts is project management. I suspect that with the educational plan you are considering you could possibly find opportunities in sports event planning, managing game development and leadership positions in organizations that focus on managing the needs of college and professional sports teams and individual atheletes. I have found that many skills developed as part of an educational program are highly portable and can be used in fields that do not appear to have a connection with a major study. Use your imagination. Also, connect with others who are thinking about these areas and network with people in the field. You will find that most jobs have a much wider range of skill requirements than those that appear obvious.
