Unformatted text preview: FREDONIA STATE UNIVERSITY SPORT MANAGEMENT & EXERCISE SCIENCE INTERNSHIPS BLUE BOOK GUIDELINES Introduction & Acknowledgments The internship is a unique experience within the curriculum of the undergraduate program at Fredonia. The primary purpose of an internship is to further intellectual, personal and professional growth. Ideally, An internship will enable students to relate classroom studies to a specific career field, to test skills and interests in that field, and to apply theory to a work setting. The academic credit received for an internship is awarded in recognition of the learning value of this experience. This Internship Handbook for Students is designed to enable students to make the most of the learning potential of their internships. It is based on the handbook used at Hartwick College, Oneonta, New York, and was originally modified by Dr. Leonard Faulk, Dean of Graduate Studies and Dr. William Muller, former Director of Internships. The latest modification by Dr. Charles Davis, targets internship experiences for students majoring in Sport Management and Exercise Science. Permission to change and editorialize was given by Mary Sasso in 2006. 2 TABLE OF CONTENTS ITEM PAGE INTRODUCTIONS AND ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS 2 I.
