I am posting two syllabi here -- one for a sports reporting class and another for a survey class called Sports and the Media. I am going to revise the reporting course to include several readings from books and award-winning articles. I am going to revamp the media course even more significantly, but will not have either of these updates until around late April. I will keep you updated.
You can download the sports reporting class syllabus as a PDF by clicking here.
And you can download the sports media course syllabus as a PDF by clicking here.
Please, send me copies of your syllabi and/or post comments below. I'm always looking for new readings, approaches and assignments. I hope these syllabi prove helpful.
You'll also want to check out a terrific syllabus from Steve Klein, who teaches at George Mason. Steve has many years experience both as a journalist and as a teacher, which is clear when you see his syllabus.
