Course content

Southampton Solent’s Sports Broadcast Journalism master’s degree is an advanced course designed to help bring you closer to a career working in video or audio production in the world of sport. Taught by industry professionals and academics, this is a challenging course where teaching is led by professional standards and industry practices.

With an emphasis on gaining real-world experience, this advanced course will help you develop the skills and knowledge to take your sports journalism career to the next level. You’ll learn how to source, gather and deliver professional sports content on numerous different video and audio platforms across a wide variety of sports. You will also be encouraged to develop your editorial and technical skills and build relationships with external clients, whilst creating a portfolio of video, audio and academic material to showcase your abilities to potential employers.

Regular ‘news days’, where students will need to respond, gather and produce stories for a same-day news and radio output, are built into the course programme to further increase students’ exposure to a realistic broadcast environment and prepare them for the deadlines and quick-thinking they’ll need to demonstrate to become a sports broadcaster. This element of the course is regarded by the Broadcast Journalism Training Council as good teaching practice.
