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, understanding the broader context in which the sports industry, and the media that cover it, operate.
This Undergraduate Degree has been designed for people who are passionate about sport and who have a real desire to develop the journalistic skills needed to bring it alive for audiences, help people understand what makes the industry tick and what happens off the sports field as well as on it.
Our Sports Journalism programme has three strands. The multi-media practical strand will equip you with key journalistic skills, including how to source, research and compile news stories and features, how to film stories and put together audio packages.
Though these practical skills are only part of the picture, Sports journalists also need to have a keen understanding of the broader news media and society in which they are working and this is where our journalism theory strand comes in. This will help you understand the context in which news is produced, along with the social, ethical and political impact of journalism on society.
Finally, our sports strand will help you understand the place sport has in today's culture as well as developing your knowledge of how the business and social context of sport has developed.
There is a strong emphasis on developing a professional portfolio of work and in providing opportunities for students to put their journalistic skills into practice, particularly through our News Production Project at the end of the first year and the six-week industry placement in the second year.
