Grounded in a social cognitive theoretical perspective, this study explores the career decision-making self-efficacy (CDSE) and vocational identity development process for college students interested or majoring in sport management. While a popular undergraduate major, little research has investigated the specific factors that influence different attitudes toward this choice of a potential employment field. Specifically, this study aims to identify how an introductory course in sport management may impact CDSE for college students. By assessing the constructs of career decision-making self-efficacy, personality characteristics, athletic identity status, hope, and academic performance with comparisons by age, sex, ethnicity, athlete status in high school and college, cumulative grade point average, and final course grade through a pre-test, post-test waitlist control group design, this study provides insight on how institutions of higher education might better serve the career needs of undergraduate students interested in a sport management career.
