Minor in Sports Media Production

About the Minor

The Sports Media Production minor is a gateway for students committed to pursuing a career in sports media while also serving as a meaningful introduction for those who are intrigued but uncertain about sports media as a profession. Students are required to take the same foundational shooting and lighting, editing, sound, and studio operations courses as the Film & Television majors and minors. They are also required to take a TVIE sports media strategy course as well as SMT digital and sports media history courses that will provide a greater academic and contextual understanding of the profession. Additional courses include actual physical production, on-air performance, and technology.
