Undergraduate Practicum Information

The practicum opportunity is designed to provide practical experience for Sport Management majors. Students will maintain a part-time workload in a setting appropriate to their specialization such as athletic programs, sports commissions, and sports agencies where significant learning possibilities exist. Through a practical experience such as this, the efficient application of knowledge, ideas, and skills in a realistic work setting can begin to occur. With this, both the student and the site should benefit immeasurably.

The major objectives for the Sport Management practicum experience are to enable the student to:

  • Begin applying the knowledge and skills attained in the campus setting to specific practical sport management issues in the workplace, and
  • Contribute significantly to the activities, events, and projects of the site.

Below are examples of activities, events, and projects appropriate to Sport Management. Each site should include the responsibility of needs assessment, planning, implementing, and evaluating activities, events and projects throughout the semester under the supervision of the site.

Provided is a list of many, but not all, opportunities that can be or should be offered by a site:

  • Special event development, organization, and presentation
  • Promotional development and distribution
  • Sport media development, distribution and historical retention
  • Bid proposals and presentations
  • Administration of daily operations
  • Facility tours
  • Recruiting
  • Membership

What is this view?

You are using a dynamic assistive view of the University of Florida site. It has all the same data and features of the original site but formatted just with assistive users in mind. It has links and content reorganized to aid assistive users and has controls at the bottom under assistive options that allow you to control key aspects such as font size and contrast colors etc.
This is not a separate text-only site, it's a dynamic view that uses unique technology from Usablenet to give assistive users better, more accessible access to the same content and features as all users that use the graphic view of the site.
