Course Information

Sport is important. Not only for ourselves, but our communities. Learn about how the participation in sporting events has brought communities together and encouraged people to overcome adversities. 

With sport being such an important part of many people’s lives, an opportunity to work as a sports journalist is a highly sought-after career. Sports Journalism is an important foundation for not only writing articles and blogs, but also for broadcasting, personal YouTube channels and other social media platforms.

You will read about player stats, research and craft profiles about your favourite sports stars. Learn about how different media organisations choose to represent sport stars and how misrepresentation of a player’s life can lead to controversy.
