UM: Sports PR

The Culpwrit blog has a post from UM senior Christy Hammond, who has her own sports blog and is an intern with the Detroit Red Wings. She writes about how to break into a career in sports public relations: “You don’t have to be a PR major, but try to take at least some courses that will help you better understand the industry. I chose to double major in Sport Management and Communication Studies because it allows me to take a variety of sport classes ranging from Sport Law to Economics to Marketing, but I also get to take classes that cater to media.” [Source]
