Course summary

Course Overview

This master's degree course has been designed and will be delivered by sports journalism 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.

Assessment

We assess students in a number of ways; practical portfolios, written essays, presentations, showreels, broadcast analysis reports, live scenarios and one exam. We offer written and verbal feedback for everything submitted and we regularly create opportunities for peer review sessions. Here’s a quick run through how those assessments breakdown across the various modules. Students can exit at Postgraduate Certificate and Postgraduate Diploma levels.

Employability & Careers

Our 60 credit work placement is designed to ensure that graduates of the programme have significant, hands-on, practical “real world experience” and regular engagement with the industry that will make them uniquely prepared for work in the Sport Broadcast Industry. With a focus on external facing content, and multi-media skill acquisition, together with constant academic reflection on the socio-political implications of sport and the business and marketing elements around professional sport, graduates from this programme will be able to meet the needs of a rapidly developing and expanding Sport Broadcast industry. Our graduates now work as reporters, presenters, researchers, content creators, producers, marketing executives and social media managers with a range of broadcasters, brands and governing bodies. They are at Sky Sports, BBC, S4C, Whisper Films, WRU, FAW, Hockey Wales, Glamorgan Cricket, Bath Rugby, Livewire Sports, Sunset and Vine, BT Sport, DAZN and IMG.
