Course Overview

UCFB is a college of Bucks New University and this course is available to applicants from the UK, EU and EEA only.

The media landscape has changed almost beyond recognition in recent years following a digital revolution which has paved the way for a 24-hour rolling news agenda on TV and the internet. In that time, sport journalism has also developed to become the fastest growing sector in UK media.

Traditional print and broadcast sport journalism, while still powerful communications platforms, are being forced to adapt and change in order to survive in a new and rapidly-developing media environment. As a result, sport journalists are now expected to develop a range of digital and social media skills which enable them to tell a story across a number of platforms in order to reach a wider, often global, audience.

The Multimedia Sports Journalism degree at UCFB is designed to equip students with a range of journalism and broadcast media skills to maximise their employability upon graduation.

This course is available with a Foundation Year. The Foundation Year will allow you to develop your academic study skills and build confidence in your abilities, identifying your own strengths and development needs for progression onto an undergraduate degree.
