If you are looking to learn the basic skills and processes of a journalist and relate them to the coverage of sport, this course will be the perfect stepping stone to a sports specialist position in the media or communications industries. Sport is far from just an activity, it is big business which influences the news agenda, whilst servicing the demands of sports fans across the globe. As well as the development of practical skills in print, online, radio and TV reporting, you will also study sport so that you become knowledgeable about its structure, evolution and organisation. Creativity is emphasised throughout, and after a final year which allows you to personalise your programme to suit your career aspirations, you will be equipped to deliver quality copy, presentations and broadcast packages within designated deadlines. Graduates of the course have gone on to work for the BBC, Granada TV, Sky Sports, the Press Association, Sunday Express, Daily Star, Everton FC, Manchester United FC, UK Athletics, the 2012 Olympics and many more print, online, broadcast and sports organisations.
