    Sports Communications

    Football. Baseball. Basketball. Hockey. Soccer. These are the five major sports that are part of culture in North America, that dominate the continent’s sports landscape.

    Sports communications is at the heart of that landscape. It is what connects athletes, teams, leagues, the media, and fans. From the in-stadium and in-arena experience to live television and radio coverage of games to pre- and post-game analysis and interviews in all forms of media, to team season ticket drives and promotions to tweets by athletes and agents, sports communications is the conduit for information, broadcast, discussion, debate, and publicity in the wide, wide world of sports.

    Degree programs in sports communications prepare students for careers in sports journalism, play-by-play broadcasting, college sports information departments, and professional sports team front offices. Courses cover media writing, editing, video and audio production, sportscasting, and sports marketing and public relations.
