There are course requisites for this subject. See access conditions.


This subject equips students with the skills required for reporting, analysis and audience engagement in digital environments across sporting codes and institutions. Students examine the changing nature of sports journalism, the business of sport and rise of the 'informed fan' as a powerful force of both journalistic opportunity and media disruption. Students work with experienced sports journalists and gain hands-on reporting experience via UTS's unique partnership with the SCG Trust and other industry relationships. They examine how the nature of sports journalism is changing, the intersection of sport and politics, and the multiple ethical, legal and policy issues that arise in the area. Industry leaders, sports stars and other guest lecturers provide students with practical guidance and insights for building a career in sports journalism and related disciplines.
