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 normally be expected to have an Upper Second or above classification for an honours degree from a British higher education institution, or an equivalent overseas qualification. Applicants with a lower second will be considered if they can demonstrate a commitment to journalism.
Mature students and candidates with non-standard qualifications are also considered, if they have substantial professional or other relevant experience.
Applicants may be required to complete a written/oral admissions test.
International students are required to have IELTS 7. UK industry accreditation bodies require IELTS 7.5 for their programme of study.
