Introduction

The Cronkite master's in sports journalism is designed to be completed in 12 months. In this 36-credit hour program, students begin with an intensive multimedia "boot camp," which teaches students to produce sports and news coverage across broadcast, digital and print platforms. From there, students take advanced classes in sports reporting, videography, photojournalism, ethics and diversity and participate in sports bureaus located in Phoenix and Los Angeles. Working under the guidance of veteran sports journalists, they gain real-world experience in a professional news environment.

Cronkite News Phoenix Sports Bureau: Students cover four major professional sports leagues, college bowl games and many other signature sporting events. Students produce digital and broadcast stories for Cronkite News and media outlets such as Sports Illustrated, Pac-12 Networks and MLB.com.

Cronkite News Los Angeles Sports Bureau: Students spend a semester in the nation’s second-largest city, reporting on professional and collegiate sports for Cronkite News and other professional media outlets. Students use the latest digital and broadcast tools to create cutting-edge multimedia sports stories, working under an experienced sports broadcast professional.
