Field Experiences

Learn about field experiences in the Sport Management program.

The highlight of the Siena Heights University Sport Management Program is the field experience component that provides students the chance to complete two practical, real world experiences.

The first is a 150-hour practicum that gives students an introduction to the sport field and lets them explore possible careers.

During their senior year, students complete a 40-hour per week internship that spans an entire academic semester. This experience gives students the opportunity to gain valuable experience related to their career aspirations and a chance to begin building their own professional network.

Students have completed internships at a variety of college, professional, and other sport organizations including the following:

  • Detroit Tigers
  • Detroit Red Wings
  • Lenawee County YMCA
  • Michigan International Speedway
  • Michigan State University Athletic Department
  • Palace Sports and Entertainment
  • The University of Toledo
  • Toledo Mud Hens
  • University of Tennessee Athletic Department
