Master of Science in Sports Journalism
The master of science in sports journalism prepares students from all academic and professional backgrounds for careers in broadcast/multimedia sports and in traditional and emerging media companies that focus on long-form writing, reporting and analysis of sports.
The program offers two tracks to broadly support the specific ambitions of students:
- Broadcast/multimedia (on-campus), for students who want to pursue careers in television, radio and online sports media with an emphasis on visual and online reporting
- Writing (online), for students who are interested in serving as sportswriters or preparing longform, non-fiction sports stories for news sites, magazines and documentary films.
Both tracks feature training in the principles, tools, craft, history and ethics of contemporary sports journalism in the context of innovative approaches to reporting and presenting information via social media and other forms. Our goal is simple: to transform a lifelong passion for sports into a successful career.
