Sports communication is the 317th most popular degree in America, with 315 students receiving their bachelors degree last year. It just beat out #318 Environmental Control Technologies, and narrowly lost to #316 Jazz.

The degree is offered at a total of 42 colleges across the nation, and is the 298th most widely offered degree. It is not offered at any of the Top 100 Best Colleges in America.

It is also worth noting that in the region of 22.2% of colleges offering sports communication are public making it a relatively inaccessible field.

The southwest produces the most sports communication graduates, largely led by Oklahoma State University-Main Campus, while it’s the Pacific-12 Conference that leads conference totals. As far as states, Arizona ranks highest, with particular help from Arizona State University-Downtown Phoenix and Indiana University-Purdue University-Indianapolis, which graduated 78 students last year alone. Although size is critical, another important factor to consider is the program’s density (the percent of all students that study sports communication). More students studied sports communication as a percentage of total students at Arizona State University-Downtown Phoenix than any other college.
