Sites of Contest: Media, Sport and Culture
Although this course has a strong academic focus there are also opportunities for students to participate in television production and engage in primary research in the field of media sport. In the television studio, students interview leading sports broadcasters, athletes and media professionals on a wide range of media sport issues for the course's own media sport programme, "Full Credit". Throughout the semester, the course considers issues of local, national and global culture. It scrutinises the increasingly close and contested relationship between sport and the media, analysing the media institutions that are producing sport, the way sport is presented in media texts and the role of the media audience.
