Cardiff Metropolitan University
industry professionals to create practitioners of Sport Broadcast and prepare them to be industry ready for employment in sport broadcast journalism. The master's degree course has been written in collaboration with the Broadcast Journalism Training Council who will make an accreditation visit in 2017. Students will develop and master a wide spectrum of broadcast journalism production skills, learn to self-shoot and edit and sharpen their journalistic instinct and editorial judgment. They will critically examine the reciprocal relationship between socio-political issues, modern media coverage and professional sport. Students will also study elements of media law, and analyse how ethics, a sense of fairness, impartiality, accuracy and a robust knowledge of regulations and rights play a crucial part in operating within the modern broadcasting landscape. The inclusion of a significant work placement module (60 credits) in this sports journalism degree offers the opportunity to work in our internal broadcast unit for a minimum of 15 sport-news production days and provides a second placement opportunity with one of our external broadcast partners. We have placement opportunities with all the major broadcasters in Wales and further afield for students who are prepared to travel; these include a number of Welsh medium placement opportunities. Through this, students will gain practical, real-world experience of various broadcast roles; presenter, reporter, producer, director, videographer, camera operator, floor manager, video editor, social media producer, commentator and all-round broadcast journalist. Students will learn to research, network and build contacts, elevating their sports reporting and writing skills to the next level and master the art of story-telling and content making in the fast-changing digital age through social media platforms, blogging and podcasts.
Proposed modules on the programme include: 80 taught credits, a 60 credit professional broadcasting placement module and a 40 credit production dissertation. Proposed titles of the modules are: Television Broadcasting (20 credits); Radio and Digital Broadcasting (20 credits); Research Skills in Journalism (20 credits); Ethics, Media Law and Landscape (20 credits); Professional Broadcasting Placement (60 credits); Production Dissertation (40 credits); There are no option modules for the programme.
This programme will be assessed through coursework, work placement assessments, portfolios of creative work and group tasks. All students will receive support for assessment through academic support in the library, formative tasks and peer assessment.
