    Minor offered: Sport Media

    A minor in Sport Media provides students an overview of the tools and insights necessary to operate within a sport media environment, whether in a promotional capacity or as a journalist or online blogger.

    The required course sequence in the minor covers everything from sport communications management to news writing to public relations considerations as they relate to sport and other industries. The “select from” course options provide students a way to tailor the minor to their specific interests or shore up skill deficiencies in areas they want to emphasize in developing their creative expertise. 

    An internship in Sport Media is highly recommended (PRS 497, SPM 296 or SPM 497).

    This minor is not available to Public Relations and Marketing Communications majors.
