Course summary

BA (Hons) Sports Journalism is an exciting and engaging programme of study which will allow you to turn your passion for sport into a rewarding career.

Sports journalism is a crucial part of the sports business model, modern culture and is a large and thriving sector within the media and communication industries.

Sports journalism is inspired by the spectacle of live sport, the drama of historical rivalries and documents athletes’ individual struggles through the lens of global sporting events.

This course will explore the enduring role of a sports journalist to simultaneously capture, describe and explain sporting events as they happen, communicating these events to their audience using various digital media platforms.

You will learn the skills and attributes you need to succeed in this rapidly changing sector and investigate the societal impact this crucial industry has on us all. As sports journalism not only covers important sporting events, but it can often hold up a mirror, towards often uncomfortable realities present in the societies in which they are situated.

You will explore different types of media (e.g. print, broadcast, digital) and investigate the legal, moral and ethical responsibilities that journalists have towards their contributors and audiences.
