Master’s Degree in Sports Journalism

Sports journalism is the branch of journalism that concerns reporting on sporting topics and games. It is an essential element of any news media organisation and is, with the growth of the sports industry, becoming more relevant and in demand every day.

Our Master’s Degree in Sports Journalism is a postgraduate programme aimed at university graduates and last-year students interested in mastering the sector of the media specialising in sports. On this Master’s Degree, you will learn to manage different specialised communication mediums and to create and manage contents related to sports.

At ESCO, we strongly believe in the need to provide our students with practical training and hands-on experience. In line with this conviction, we make sure that our students can experience real sports journalism by offering visits to important sports venues and TV broadcasters.
