Multimedia Sports Journalism BA (Hons)




What will I learn?


Working alongside the many sports clubs, bodies and media companies based in Northamptonshire, your first year will see you learning and starting to apply key audio and video production skills. You will also learn how to write sports stories and understand laws and ethics which apply to sports reporting.

The second year will see you apply those production and writing skills in live newsdays; attending press conferences and live events and reporting on our own FM radio station, NLive. You will learn how to report in the growing world of esports and develop skills in sports magazine production and sports commentary.

In the final year you will apply your skills to professional standards in multi-platform newsdays, as well as develop your employment skills ready for that future career. You will learn about future trends in journalism tech and storytelling. Your final year project will be either a documentary or a magazine and your dissertation will analyse and question a key issue in sports media production, sports journalism or sports ethics.


You will be taught by people who still work in the journalism industry to follow the career paths they still enjoy. Coupled with the opportunities given to you by our sports clubs and media around the county and beyond, this BJTC accredited course will give you opportunities to learn and be supported by tutors who see you as more than a number.

You will also have your learning future-proofed, by studying the growing areas of Esports reporting, data journalism, drone journalism and many other future technologies.

In your first year, you will study media law and how both political and sporting opportunities work, so you understand how to get a story and how sport works as an industry.
