About the Sports Media Undergraduate Certificate
The College of Media & Communication offers a 12-hour Undergraduate Certificate in Sports Media for students planning on media careers in the sports industry. Sports media jobs are often interdisciplinary, cutting across the traditional media disciplines of journalism, electronic media, public relations, and advertising. The certificate consists of four courses, each with three units of credit, taken from various college departments. Students can choose four courses from ADV 3350 , ADV 4301 (Olympics and Global Promotion), CMI 4301 (Producing for Sports), JOUR 4305 , PR 3354 , PR 4301 (Sports Media Production), PR 4301 (Global Sports Public Relations).
Students may also apply an internship (ADV 3390 , COMS 4304 , JOUR 3390 , CMI 3390 , or PR 3390 ) as long as there is an emphasis in sports media and communication.
