Sports Journalism
A study of Sports Journalism and its applications in today's multi-faceted media world. Learn the tricks of the trade when it comes to covering sporting news, events, controversies, and the athletes who create them. Sports journalism has become a 24/7 business which requires a broad knowledge of subjects beyond the games. What are the elements necessary to create a good sports feature story? What is a basic approach to covering athletic stories that transcend sports?   This course will draw upon many of the DC area's elite sports journalists to convey their experiences to the next generation of sportswriters/sportscasters. Students will be asked to produce "news and feature" sports stories that apply to various mediums. A final project will be produced and delivered in a selected medium.
