More about the Program

Tailored to the student, this degree can be customized to the students’ needs and interests. Students have utilized the program’s collaborations with the Antonin Scalia Law School to complete a master’s degree in individualized study with a concentration in sport law, for example. Others have chosen a path of data analytics, taking classes through the School of Business and the School of Sport Recreation, Tourism and Management to earn a master’s degree in individualized study with a concentration in sport analytics. Qualified Mason undergraduates may be admitted to the bachelor's/accelerated master's program and obtain both a bachelor's degree in any area and an MS in Sport and Recreation Studies within an accelerated timeframe.
