Admission Requirements

Undergraduate Program

For acceptance into the undergraduate program in Recreation and Sport Management, applicants must meet the general admission requirements of the University of Arkansas.

Graduate Program

Master’s Program: The RESM program undertakes a holistic review of applicants’ admissions files, including any GRE test scores submitted and applicants’ overall undergraduate grade-point average and GPA on the last 60 hours of undergraduate course work. The program requires applicants to submit both a statement of interest and resume.

Ph.D. Program: Applicants must have completed a master’s degree or its equivalent and meet general admissions requirements of the UA Graduate School.  Incoming doctoral students should identify an appropriate faculty mentor based on research interests.  Students are rarely admitted to a program without a mutual agreement between the student and a faculty member.  Doctoral applicants must submit three letters of recommendation through the Graduate School site, in addition to official transcripts, GRE scores, CV or resume, and statement of interest.  It is possible the applicant will interview with program faculty, particularly if the student is being considered for a graduate assistant position.  The program may require additional prerequisites after review of application materials.
