A master's degree course that has been designed and will be delivered by sports journalism industry professionals to create practitioners of Sport Broadcast and prepare them to be industry ready for employment in sport broadcast journalism. The master's degree course has been written in collaboration with the Broadcast Journalism Training Council who will make an accreditation visit in 2017.
Students will develop and master a wide spectrum of broadcast journalism production skills, learn to self-shoot and edit and sharpen their journalistic instinct and editorial judgment. They will critically examine the reciprocal relationship between socio-political issues, modern media coverage and professional sport. Students will also study elements of media law, and analyse how ethics, a sense of fairness, impartiality, accuracy and a robust knowledge of regulations and rights play a crucial part in operating within the modern broadcasting landscape.
