Are you a sophomore interested in a career in Sports Journalism?  If so, the UMass Journalism Program has a huge opportunity for you.

We have proposed a special Concentration in Sports Journalism* to begin this Fall that will include four courses and an internship. Courses will cover beat writing, blogging, column writing, multimedia, sports photography and more.

If you’re interested, please contact Professor Steve Fox (, who will serve as the coordinator of the program. There will be an application process in order to take the first course this Fall, so the earlier you get started the better.

*The concentration is pending approval from the Faculty Senate.
