Introducing the Utah Hockey Sports Media Internship
The College of Humanities and Department of Communication are proud to announce a partnership with Utah Hockey to offer internships in Sports Media Production, Broadcast, and Creation.
Internship positions range from team photographers, team videographers, team writers, digital imaging technicians, digital media interns, broadcast technical directors, play-by-play broadcasters, color broadcasters, sideline reporters, broadcast camera operators, audio engineers, replay operators, graphics creation & operations, graphic designers, and everything in between.
"This has been a multiyear initiative for Utah Hockey, and one we are so happy to formally announce," said President & GM AJ Boldan. "Our goal is to provide a supportive learning environment for interns while working in the fast past world of college hockey. As this program grows, we do plan to expand the scope and duration of our internship offerings."
The internship program is currently designed as a multi-semester progression, allowing students to begin with an exploration of the available positions in their first semester before diving deeper into one area the second semester. Students participating in this program will also have the ability to earn credit toward their degree for both the Fall and Spring semesters.
“We are thrilled to partner with Utah Hockey in providing a program that focuses on training, application, and growth. These internships are especially great for first and second-year students and can lead to many other opportunities in the field of sports” said Cameron Vakilian, Director of Advising, Outreach, and Experiential Learning for the College of Humanities.
