The Athletics Department offers paid and volunteer internship opportunities in the following areas: Athletic Communications; Equipment; Compliance, Events & Operations; Marketing; Multimedia; Recreation; and the Ticket Office. Interns play an important role in helping us run our department. Our philosophy is to provide interns with hands-on experience that shows them what goes into running a Division I Athletics program. We also run an Intern Development Program, consisting of informal monthly breakfast or lunch meetings with athletics administrators and coaches, so you can get practical insights into careers in sports management and build your network.
