Are you passionate about sports? If so, this is the course for you. Sport is part of everyone’s life. Sport and physical activity have the power to transform people’s wellbeing and create a fitter, healthier and happier nation while contributing approximately £40 billion to the UK economy every year. This new course will offer you the unique opportunity to focus your journalistic ambitions on the sport of your choice – from cricket, rugby or football to car racing, gymnastics and minority sports (e.g. Women’s sports and Paralympics). With Wolverhampton Wonderers just across the road and other local clubs (West Bromwich, Telford, Walsall, Staffordshire Cricket Club etc.) within easy reach, you will frequently go to press conferences, matches and other sports events in the area.

Following the success of our BJTC- accredited Multimedia Journalism course, the new course will focus on sport and wellbeing, which will enable you to perform roles in different areas of the sport industry. You will be introduced to a full range of modern media and will adopt real-world working strategies (news days), produce ground-breaking audio, video, web and social media content and benefit from work placements that will enable you to enter the job market with the most up-to-date and relevant knowledge and expertise.

This dynamic course will teach you how to produce compelling sports content for both traditional and emerging media platforms. You will gain the core journalistic research and writing skills as well as studying media law and ethics. Working in our industry fit facilities, you will develop a multi-platform mind-set, producing print, radio and TV news, reports, features, documentaries, as well as creating blogs and podcasts, digital photos, audio/video stories and content for websites and mobile devices.

The course is delivered by staff with extensive professional journalism experience together with a range of practicing journalists who come into the University as visiting lecturers.
