About this program

Sports Journalism

You grew up glued to ESPN. You know your favorite team's stats like the back of your hand. And you can easily reel off a list of your all time favorite play calls. Can you turn this personal love of the game into a professional career? You can as a sports journalist.

Truthfully, it's a competitive field. But competition is one of the most exciting aspects of sports, isn't it? And when you study Sports Journalism at the NESCom, you gain a solid grounding in the competitive skills you need to become a capable Sports Journalist. You'll also get real hands-on experience, including:

  • Play-by-play with color, sports reporting, writing for print, radio, TV and web.
  • Video Production skills
  • Anchoring skills

Admission requirements

In addition to the admission requirements outlined in the application for admission, first-year international applicants must submit official copies of one test that assesses English competency. Husson University accepts the TOEFL (minimum score of 75) or IELTS (minimum score 6). Students who have been studying in a total English immersion environment for two or more years may replace the test of English competency with the SAT or ACT. In addition, after acceptance, students will complete an English and Math Placement Exam prior to class placement. Assessments help to ensure course placements that provide the strongest support for academic success.
