Course summary

The growth and commercialisation of sport and rapid development of digital and social media tools makes sports journalism an exciting and fast-moving branch of the industry. This specialist course enables you to develop the practical and critical skills needed by 21st century sports journalists - covering the traditional research and writing skills as well as those needed to handle new and developing media forms. Inform your journalism with knowledge of the wider political, social, historical and economic sporting environment, and gain core communication skills, and ethical and legal knowledge essential to all journalists.

Sports media has seen a growth in PR and web opportunities that Sports Journalism graduates can explore. The journalism team works closely with employers within the industry, successful graduates and the Careers and Employability Service at the University of Bedfordshire. These links result in talks and practical professional experience events enabling you to build contacts and network within your area of interest. Professional skills and values underpin this course and are an integral part of teaching and learning within all units. We assist every student to develop the ability to evaluate effectively and reflect on their own and work of others, and understand the demands and requirements of employers.

The Foundation Year provides an opportunity to build up your academic writing skills and numeracy, and will also cover a range of subject specific content to fully prepare you for entry to an Undergraduate degree. This is an integrated four-year degree, with the foundation year as a key part of the course. You will need to successfully complete the Foundation Year to progress on to the first year of your bachelor’s degree. During your Foundation Year you will get the opportunity to talk to tutors about your degree study and future career aspirations, and receive guidance on the most appropriate Undergraduate course to help you achieve this; providing you meet the entry requirements and pass the Foundation Year.
