A Specialty In Sports PR?

I received an interesting question via email yesterday from Katia (Athens, Greece).  She is in her fifth year at the American College of Greece, studying Communications, with an emphasis on PR (Public Relations) & Advertising.

I was not sure of the answer to her question, but figured that some of you may be able to help her out.  This is what she asked,

I was thinking about continuing my education with a masters degree in the USA, and I’ve been looking for universities that specialize in Sports PR. I just wanted to ask you, if you are able and willing to help me out, if you are aware of institutions that provide students with that chance. Because my research so far hasn’t been very productive. Do you happen to know any universities I can contact?

I know of universities that offer specializations in Sports Business, Sports Law, and Sports Management, but how about Sports PR?
