SPMG 8112 - Internship, 12 Credits

Prerequisite(s): SPMG 7001 with D or better

Level: Upper

This course is a work experience designed to assist the student in making the transition from the classroom to a segment of the sport management field. The internship permits a degree of independence and an element of learning that is not possible in a conventional classroom. The intent of the internship is to provide each student with an experiential learning opportunity as a pre-professional in sport management. Students will complete supervised field work in a sport management segment, that segment to be determined mutually by the Internship Coordinator and the student. Each student will have a planned program of educational objectives approved by the student, Site Supervisor, and Internship Coordinator. A written paper, and a public, oral presentation, along with a journal of work activities and experiences, will be required. The final grade will be determined by the Internship Coordinator and the Site Supervisor. Approval by the Internship Coordinator is required for registration.
