Application | The Minor | Sport, Media, and Culture Minor | University of Notre Dame


Fill out the interest form


In order to ensure students will have adequate access to courses, internships, and faculty resources, SMAC will solicit applications and cap student enrollment at approximately 20 students per year. Students from any school, college, or major may apply.  

SMAC seeks to enroll a cohort of students with a variety of backgrounds, identities, and relationships to sport. We seek students from across a range of disciplinary perspectives, including those interested in:

  • sports media, broadcasting, or journalism
  • analysis of sports, representation, and power from an Arts & Letters perspective
  • sports education, coaching, and community engagement
  • examining one's own relationship with sport through an academic lens
  • a career in the sports industry


SMAC is not currently accepting applications. The deadline for application submission was March 14, 2022 and students were notified by the end of March. Applications will re-open in Spring 2023. In the meantime, you can fill out this minor interest form to be notified when the next round of applications begins.
