Since its creation in 2014, the sports communication major has provided prospective and current students of Clemson an overwhelming amount of opportunities and resources at their disposal. Assistant professor Dr. John Spinda and current student Joe Chapman took out time to discuss the major, and what it means to both of them.
"We’re looking for students who are willing to come to campus and assert themselves with all the opportunities that are here.”
You can find the sports communication department on the third floor of Daniel Hall in office #305
Dr. Spinda encourages students to give his classes their best, and expects them to go above and beyond to better prepare themselves for the future. With sports communication being a closed major, smaller class sizes are beneficial.
"We usually get somewhere in the neighborhood of 25-35 students that come in during the fall and it's really competitive for the students coming in." -Dr. John Spinda
Joe Chapman added this about small class sizes: "I think it's been nice because it gives you more one-on-one time with the teacher and a lot better relationship with the teacher. I think that's a pretty big benefit to the program."
