Internships

Both the graduate and undergraduate sports management programs at Old Dominion University require the completion of a 400 hour internship experience in a sport related job setting. The internship experience is usually taken as the final or culminating experience in the student's sports management academic program. *Please note: Graduate students may complete a thesis option in place of the internship experience.
