The major in Sport Management incorporates the social and cultural dimensions of sport, management and leadership, ethics, marketing, communications, budget and finance, economics, sport governance, sport law, facility and event management and video technology in its program offerings. A pre-internship and internship (400 clock hours) complete the requirements for a Bachelor of Science degree in Sport Management.

Our capstone experience requires students to engage in a 400-hour internship at an organization involved in sports or sport management/administration.  The Buffalo Bills, Buffalo Sabres,  New York Islanders, Jamestown Jammers, Buffalo Bisons, local and regional universities and high school athletic departments, regional and national YMCA’s, service organizations, sporting good firms, and local and regional health and recreation centers are just a few of the high-quality internship experiences Fredonia Sport Management students have contracted with. The Sport Management internship may be completed during any semester including summer and J-Term. Students must meet all transportation and living expenses while involved in the intern experience.

For information on Sport Management internships, please contact the instructor of the internship course SPMG 400. The Career Development Office provides additional information on these and other opportunities and college policy on experiential education.
