Breadth Major in Sports Media (BM0034.1)
|Faculty of Arts and Design
|School of Arts and Communications
If you know your sport, you like telling stories and want to report on the events that often captivate the nation and the world, this specialisation brings together those interests and skills to prepare you for a variety of career opportunities in the sports media industries. The Sports Media Major is founded on the principles of journalism. You will learn how to research, produce and present sports stories in text, visual and audio formats for mobile, online, social, broadcast and print media. Your sports media experience will be practical. You will learn how to report on 'live' sporting events, interview elite athletes and coaches, and host your own podcast and TV panel show. The role of sports media practitioners is not confined to telling stories about events in the sporting arena; you will explore the media's role in reporting on sport's influence in Australian society and a broader global context.
This breadth major is not available to students in the Bachelor of Communication and Media (Sports Media) and Bachelor of Communication and Media (Journalism) courses.
