From sports nut to Sports Journalist

As of Fall 2014, Media Studies will have a name change to Mass Communications

You grew up glued to ESPN. You know your favorite team’s stats like the back of your hand. And you can easily reel off a list of your all time favorite play calls. Can you turn this personal love of the game into a professional career? You can as a sports journalist.Sports Journalism

Truthfully, it’s a competitive field. And unless you’re a Joe Buck, don’t expect inside access overnight (it helps when your dad was a famous announcer first.) But competition is one of the most exciting aspects of sports, isn’t it? And when you study Sports Journalism at the NESCom, you gain a solid grounding in the competitive skills you need to become a capable Sports Journalist. You’ll also get real hands-on experience, including:

  • Play-by-play with color, sports reporting, writing for print, radio, TV and web.
  • Video Production skills
  • Anchoring skills

NESCOM offers a very extensive sports journalism program and that means you’ll begin acquiring skills in this profession your very first semester. Check out our highlight reel at nescom.tv by clicking on student showcase.
