The Falk College is conveniently located near Syracuse University’s Carrier Dome, the only multi-purpose domed sports facility on a college campus. The cornerstone of the Syracuse University sport management program has been its multitude of experiential learning opportunities associated with its theory-to-practice approach to teaching. In conjunction with the Syracuse Athletics Department, the Carrier Dome is a ‘living laboratory’ for students.
