The Field Study is a practical learning experience for students in Sport Management. This experience allows students the opportunity to practice the application of theory and apply the knowledge acquired through academic preparation, while learning skills of an entry level practitioner. Experience at a Field Study site not only draws on course offerings, but makes possible the development of professional skills. The Field Study is an in-depth supervised work and study experience, where the student has a degree of responsibility for planning, directing and supervising the work of others.
