The Graduate Diploma in Sports Media equips students with the skills, techniques and knowledge to build a career across multiple areas of sports management, administration, journalism and communication. The course draws from the disciplines of journalism, public relations and business to deliver invaluable learning experiences in media management, sports administration and marketing, audience development and reporting and editing across text, video and audio. UTS's unique arrangement with the Sydney Cricket Ground Trust delivers a range of opportunities for students across sporting codes, adding an in-house, hands-on element to every aspect of the course. Students are behind the scenes and in front of the action. The course is delivered by teachers from UTS's School of Communication and School of Business along with leading industry practitioners. The emphasis is on delivering both practical and reflective learning opportunities, so that graduates are doers and thinkers and possess both practical and strategic skills.
The course totals 48 credit points of study, made up of six core subjects. Full-time students are required to undertake 24 credit points a session. Part-time students should undertake 8 or 16 credit points a session.
