Summary

Scotland’s historic capital city is home to the long-established journalism programme at Edinburgh Napier University. Building on the success of our existing multi-platform courses, MA Sports Journalism specialises in digital storytelling for sports coverage in print, online and broadcast. The course utilises the university’s journalism facilities: our multi-platform digital newsroom and studios for both television and radio.

The sports journalism marketplace has expanded exponentially, driven by technological change, with traditional media supplemented by web-based publishing, digital radio and TV. Broadcast sport schedules and print sections have been extended and new media like podcasts, video platforms and websites have driven an expansion of user-generated content, including fan media.

You will learn and develop a wide range of the practical skills of sports journalism, commentary and punditry for TV, radio, podcast, online and newspapers.

Edinburgh Napier University focusses on employability and our journalism programme benefits from industry links with media companies and with sporting organisations. As well as being the subject of sports coverage, the sport bodies and clubs increasingly employ in-house journalism teams to produce video and written content for their channels.
