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.

This course has the option to be taken over four years which includes a year placement in industry. Undertaking a year in industry has many benefits. You gain practical experience and build your CV, as well as being a great opportunity to sample a profession and network with potential future employers.
