The media landscape has changed almost beyond recognition in recent years following a digital revolution which has paved the way for a 24-hour rolling news agenda on TV and the internet. In that time, sport journalism has also developed to become the fastest growing sector in UK media.
Traditional print and broadcast sport journalism, while still powerful communications platforms, are being forced to adapt and change in order to survive in a new and rapidly-developing media environment. As a result, sport journalists are now expected to develop a range of digital and social media skills which enable them to tell a story across a number of platforms in order to reach a wider, often global, audience.
Degree contentStudents should graduate with a detailed understanding of social and digital sports media, media law and ethics, broadcast journalism, television production, online journalism and contemporary issues in sport media, among other key, relevant topics.This degree aims to provide students with all the necessary skills and theoretical understanding to succeed in this new and exciting media age.
Career prospects for graduates of the BA (Hons) Multimedia Sports Journalism degree programme at UCFB include roles such as a sports reporter for a local newspaper; a dedicated sporting website; a regional television station or a regional radio station. Opportunities also exist within the media offices of sports organisations.
