This course introduces students to the core principles, values, and best practices that guide the work of professional sports journalists. Students will develop skills that are necessary to function as sports journalists in today’s media environment.
Sports Journalism is one of the fastest growing fields in all of media. Not only are traditional and online media outlets hiring sports journalists, but now teams, leagues, and even players are hiring their own sports media creators to deliver their message to the public. This class prepares students for a variety of jobs within the world of sports journalism. Additionally, the class is a key component of the new Sports Media concentration being developed at the School of Journalism and Mass Communications.
