Sport is big news and big business, and that means Sports Journalism is about much more than match reports and event coverage. It’s about exploring the stories behind the headlines and understanding the broader context that the sports industry, and those who cover it, operate in. Our degree has been designed for people who are passionate about sport, who have a real desire to develop the journalistic skills needed to bring it alive for audiences. Our students help people understand what makes the industry tick and learn about what happens off the sports field, as well as on it. Our Sports Journalism course will also teach you transferrable skills that will broaden your choices in the job market and make you more employable. The programme also offers you the opportunity to take the Diploma in Journalism, run by the National Council for the Training of Journalists (NCTJ), alongside your degree.
On this degree you will study a range of modules, including the following: Practical Journalism, Journalism in Society, Sport in the UK, Radio Broadcasting, Practical Journalistic Styles, PR in Practice, Global Sport, Issues in Sport, Radio Production, Digital Media Portfolio, Law for Journalists, Specialist Magazine Writing, and Television Journalism.
