COSMA Accreditation

Liberty University has received specialized accreditation for its sport management programs through the Commission on Sport Management Education (COSMA) located in Arlington, Va. The sport management programs in the following degrees are accredited by COSMA:

  • Bachelor of Science in Sport Management
  • Master of Science in Sport Management with cognates in Sport Administration, Outdoor Adventure Sport, Tourism and General Studies

The Commission on Sport Management Accreditation (COSMA) is a specialized accrediting body whose purpose is to promote and recognize excellence in sport management education worldwide in colleges and universities at the baccalaureate and master's levels through specialized accreditation.

In 2010, Liberty University's Undergraduate Sport Management Program was approved as a charter member of COSMA and given full accreditation. Shortly after that, in 2015, all of the Sport Management Graduate Programs also received full accreditation from COSMA. The Liberty University Department of Sport Management is proud of our accreditation through COSMA and how this achievement demonstrates the validity and design of our programs.

As part of our accreditation standards with COSMA and as a matter of public accountability, the Department of Sport Management discloses our yearly student assessment results. These yearly results can be found at the link below.
