Internship Experiences

Each of our Sport Management majors is required to complete no less than 480 contact hours at an approved internship site(s) upon attaining Senior Standing (completion of their Junior year). The internship experience is a primary requirement for degree completion.

The internship experiences allow our Sport Management majors to gain pre-professional experience, designed to enhance development of knowledge, skills and abilities in the sport management field. Therefore, the internship serves as preparation for additional experiential learning, graduate school and/or entry level employment.

Common Internship experiences include one or more of the following ”hands-on” activities:

  • Customer interaction and personnel supervision
  • Observation and participation in program leadership.
  • Observe/research/analyze current activities and future trends in the industry
  • Involving the student intern, as applicable in management meetings and communications
  • A “capstone” experience, e.g., marketing plan, fundraising project, special event promotion, etc.; professional presentation, or research/case study in a sport management discipline.
