Course Information

The combination of an MA and NCTJ Diploma will significantly boost your employability as a sports journalist. This is an intensive course that trains you to think, write and research like a journalist; previous study of journalism is not a requirement.

You will learn how to write previews, match reports and sports features, and you will also cover media ethics and law, reporting and shorthand. In the final stage of the course, you will undertake a dissertation or a practical project, such as a sports journalism website or a series of in-depth articles.
