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.

Each module is worth a specified number of credits (typically either 15 or 30 credits for undergraduate courses). Compulsory (or ‘core’) modules cover key subject knowledge, while ‘option’ modules enable you to develop your own interests.

The number of option modules you can take depends on the number of compulsory modules at each level. You can find more information about how your course is structured via the Academic Advice pages.
Our teaching is informed by research and employer requirements, and modules change periodically to reflect developments in the subject area.

If an option module does not run, we will advise you as soon as possible and help you choose an alternative module.
