Sports Media Minor

Sports Media is a rapidly growing area of study in colleges and universities. Digital and social media have created new audiences and new content channels that are seeking professionals with a full set of competencies—writing, video, photography, social media, data analytics and communication skills—to meet their demand. The minor in Sports Media will allow students across all majors to develop those competencies and gain hands-on experience in sports media content creation. 

Students will gain a foundation in the methods and techniques for communicating about sports in a variety of formats and media. Students will also participate in a robust practicum program, producing professional-grade content to be utilized by Vanguard Athletics and resulting in a professional portfolio of work for the student to showcase to prospective employers.
