The final step before graduation is a semester-long internship in the sport industry. The internship is a full-time (480 hour) work experience. The student is encouraged to find an internship that relates closely with his/her career aspirations. Assistance for finding an internship is provided by the program if needed. The student is directed and evaluated by a faculty member with appropriate supervision and by an on-site professional. Please see our internship documents below.
