Participating in an internship is an optional part of the two-year MA program in Sports Storytelling. The following media outlets, sports teams and organizations recently signed on to offer internships to our students:
- NBA TV
- Atlanta Hawks
- UTA Talent Agency, Sports Management
- Charlotte Hornets
- Comerica Bank
- Detroit Pistons
- Detroit Tigers
- Chicago Fire MLS Soccer
We also encourage our students to take advantage of the many opportunities for educational and professional experiences in local and regional sports: (1) Wake is NCAA Division I with a full complement of women and men’s sports. (2) Winston is headquarters for IMG College and a semi-pro baseball team. (3) Nearby Charlotte is home to major television affiliates with sports units as well as home to the pro teams Charlotte Bobcats and Panthers.
In addition, the faculty will work with students to secure independently identified internship positions.
