PGM Curriculum

The College of Food, Agricultural and Environmental Sciences, in cooperation with the Fisher College of Business, College of Education and Human Ecology, and OSU Athletics developed the OSU PGM program. The educational objective of the PGM program is to provide a well-defined internship/cooperative academic experience that provides students with the opportunity to acquire a well-rounded college education while specializing in golf management.  This degree is multi-disciplinary and incorporates a broad range of courses that are readily available and taught on campus.  In addition to the specific courses required to complete the major and the General Education courses, students must also complete the course requirements for a business minor.
