SM 3900 - Professional Seminar in Sport Management

This course is designed to prepare students for SM 4900 - Sport Management Internship  . It is required for all Sport Management majors at least one semester prior to taking SM 4900 . The purpose of the seminar is to assist students in their development of a professional identity and a portfolio that focuses on their intended career path, as well as to match that career path with potential internship sites. The student will develop a strategic career plan, targeted resume, statement of personal philosophy, letter of application/interest and other materials to assist in securing an internship and to prepare for long-term success in this career path. The course will also enable students to review and analyze the requirements, policies and responsibilities of the Sport Management internship. A targeted search for and inquiry about potential sites and resources for the sport management internships is central to the course. Additionally, students will gain experience in the interviewing process. Emphasis will be placed on development of professional behaviors that will facilitate success in the internship and subsequent career tracks.

Prerequisite: SM 2500  and junior standing.
