Our exciting new MA Sports Journalism programme builds on the glowing track record of our well-established undergraduate Sports Journalism programme. Read more
Our exciting new MA Sports Journalism programme builds on the glowing track record of our well-established undergraduate Sports Journalism programme. Graduates now work for organisations such as Sky and the BBC and in the media offices of football clubs and other sporting organisations.
This course offers you the chance to learn the multimedia skills and techniques of the sports journalist.

Sport is big business, influencing politics, finance, fashion and music as well as being the focal point of community joy and despair. It is also, of course, great fun and one of the most exciting jobs around. The role of the sports journalist is increasingly important, reporting the action and results that millions want to know about and also scrutinising the activities of those who organise and fund the increasingly varied sports agenda.

Students will also learn the essentials of law as it impacts on journalists and study and debate the ethics of journalism and learn about the business of sport. The course is very hands-on and students will learn in realistic newsroom and studio environments. Students also undertake an industry placement, so that they have every opportunity to emerge at the end of the course with excellent contacts as well as a track record of achievement.
This Masters programme is a rigorous programme of study that equips students with the knowledge, skills and practical experience needed to operate as professional sports journalists in a modern digitalised newsroom.
The course begins with an intensive introduction to creating content where students learn how to report and write stories for publication. Students also study a digital journalism module that will enable them to develop the skills and strategies needed to exploit the changing media landscape and to respond to the challenges presented by the emergence of multiplatform production.

Students will also appreciate the ethical, legal and commercial considerations they will need to consider in order to function as accurate and responsible journalists and understand the organisation and functions of the sports business.

In these first weeks, students enjoy a realistic and useful appreciation of collaborative and multi-skilled journalism since all our postgraduate journalism students will study and practice together. Sports Journalism students will also take a module that will introduce them to the role of a sports reporter.

All teaching will take place over three intensive days. There is also a part time route available which will allow students to split the programme over two or three years.

Shorthand is offered as an additional 10th module. Many employers require entrants to have 100 wpm shorthand and we strongly advise applicants who wish to practise in the UK to take this module.
In semester two, students will move into either a print and online or broadcast newsroom where they will be providing sports contents for either newspapers and websites or TV or radio newsdays and websites.
