Sport media is a multidisciplinary field combining a working knowledge of sport management with a mastery of traditional and new media outlets to present sports news, information, and entertainment. Professionals working in the industry publicize sports news and entertainment events using traditional media including television and radio and digital media such as in-house websites, social media platforms, and blogs. As such, job candidates possessing the requisite sport management knowledge and digital media creation expertise are ideally qualified for opportunities in this industry.
The Sport Media Certificate will teach students how to effectively create and communicate with digital media in the context of sport and entertainment. Students will have the opportunity to enhance their education by using the Sport Media Certificate courses as electives while completing a bachelor's degree in Sport Management, Marketing, Photography, Web Design or Graphic Design. The certificate is also appropriate separately for those who already work within the sports or digital media field and would like to advance their careers in sport media.
