Internships in Sport Management
Students majoring in Sport Management are required to complete an internship in a related field. This experiential education component provides students with the opportunity to develop skills, explore career directions, and turn theory into practice in the professional working environment.
SUNY Fredonia Sport Management students have completed internships with the Buffalo Bills, Buffalo Sabres, and Jamestown Jammers, as well as other outstanding local and regional businesses and professionals.
Prior to embarking on an internship, Sport Management majors must successfully complete
SPMG 298, a pre-internship course. This classroom course prepares students for their
internship experience through exploration of topics such as: resume writing, interview
protocols, expectations in a professional setting, understanding the student internship
contract and evaluations, and the use and limitations of web-based employment and
career search services.
