he way we watch and follow sports may change, but the role of the sportscaster continues to serve as an essential part of the audience’s experience. It’s a position that requires a unique combination of skills – from on-camera presenting, to live production, to interviewing and content creation – plus an understanding of where sports media is headed in the future.
Developed in collaboration with sportscasting veteran Dan Patrick, the goal of the Sportscasting bachelor’s degree is to provide students with constant real-world experience both on camera and behind the scenes. You’ll build a foundation in interviewing, voice work, writing and storytelling, with ongoing guidance from professional mentors who are active in the world of sportscasting. Plus, you’ll gain advanced knowledge in news-gathering, reporting, and multimedia communication, and develop presenting skills for current and emerging technologies – from broadcast, to gaming, to virtual and augmented reality.
To help you move toward your desired path, industry experts serving as associate faculty will help guide you in the development and review of your demo reel. You’ll also have ongoing course modules dedicated to career preparation – from résumé writing, to personal branding, to job interview skills. And our Career Development advisors and services will be available for support and assistance throughout your career – not just while you are a student.

“To get into this business, you need to have experience just to get your foot in the door. We created this degree to give students opportunities to prove and refine their talents while they’re still in school – not just after they’ve graduated.” — Dan Patrick
