Sports Media

Thinking about a career in sports media?

The proliferation of sports programming in both traditional and new media is triggering an increasing demand for graduates with sports production, sports promotion and sports journalism backgrounds.

The School of Journalism and the Radio-Television Department are joined forces to establish specializations in both academic units.
