About

Sports Journalism is about much more than match reports and events coverage. It’s about unearthing the stories behind the headlines and understanding the broader context that the sports industry operates in. The Sports Journalism (Hons) program is offered by Leeds Trinity University.

Overview

The vocational approach blends theory, practical skills development, and professional work experience. During the Sports Journalism (Hons) program at Leeds Trinity University, you’ll develop key journalistic skills, such as how to source, research and compile news stories, how to film stories and put together audio packages, and how to write shorthand.

But these practical skills are only part of the picture – you also need to understand the broader news media and society in which you’re working. We’ll develop your knowledge of journalism theory to help you understand the context in which news is produced, along with law and the social, ethical and political impact of journalism on society.

You’ll learn about the place sport has in today’s culture, as well as the business of sport including sports advertising, sponsorship and staging multisports events.

You’ll be able to develop an impressive professional portfolio of work and gain journalism experience through the professional work placements included in your degree. Your learning environment will simulate the professional news environment, with newsrooms and industry-standard TV and broadcast studios on campus.

You’ll also have the option of completing your National Council for the Training of Journalists (NCTJ) qualification alongside your degree.

Graduate Opportunities 

Our graduates work in regional and national organisations covering broadcast (TV and radio), online and print. You’ll also develop transferable skills such as writing, communication and interviewing, which has prepared many of our students for roles in PR and marketing.
