MA Sports Broadcast Journalism

If you want to bring your sports knowledge to radio, the internet or television screens, 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.

Students on this course have full access to the University’s industry-standard broadcast facilities, which include four television studios, eight radio studios and extensive editing and production facilities as well as professional grade camera, audio and lighting equipment, which are configured to the industry standard. Students also have access to computers with Final Cut Pro X and Adobe Audition.

Skills and experience

The course encourages students to develop their editorial and technical skills and build relationships with external clients, whilst creating a portfolio of video, audio and academic material to showcase their 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. As part of your studies, you will have the opportunity to undertake a work experience placement.
