Sports Journalism

Our programme builds on the glowing track record of our well-established undergraduate sports journalism programme. Graduates now work for organisations such as Sky and the BBC and in the media offices of football clubs and other sporting organisations. This programme offers you the chance to learn the multimedia skills and techniques of the sports journalist. Sport is big business, influencing politics, finance, fashion and music as well as being the focal point of community joy and despair; the role of the sports journalist is increasingly important, reporting the action and results that millions want to know about and also scrutinising the activities of those who organise and fund the increasingly varied sports agenda. Students will also learn the essentials of law as it impacts on journalists and study and debate the ethics of journalism and learn about the business of sport. The course is very hands-on and students will learn in realistic newsroom and studio environments. Students also undertake an industry placement, so that they have every opportunity to emerge at the end of the course with excellent contacts as well as a track record of achievement.
