Yes, the Sports, Fitness, and Recreation Management concentration is offered online.

Am I required to take the GRE?
Most applicants are required to take the GRE. However, if your undergraduate degree is from ULM, is in a related field, and if your GPA was a 3.0 or above, the GRE requirement may be waived. If you think you are eligible to waive the GRE requirement, contact the program coordinator.

Are graduate assistantships available?
