Overview

Love sports? Love broadcast journalism? You’ll love this 2-week hands-on sports broadcasting program at UMass Journalism.

Pre-college programs at UMass combine all the major elements of college, including great academics, living in a residence hall, and eating in our award-winning dining commons. Of course, it takes a little help to adjust to life on a college campus, so we have great live-in program assistants who are specially trained to help you get used to a new environment, both geographic and social. We have lots of great events in the evenings and on weekends that help you connect with other pre-college students. __________________________________________________________

Learn the basics of sports broadcasting in our new state-of-the-art broadcast studio with experienced UMass Journalism faculty as your teachers. You’ll learn about story idea generation, game preparation, interviewing, script writing, camera work, video/audio editing and on-air presentation. And you’ll cover actual sports stories in the Amherst area to gain experience in the field. You’ll learn how to use our cutting-edge cameras and equipment, too—and have a great time with new friends in the process.

Greeley Kyle, Lecturer in Broadcast Journalism, Journalism Department, and Steve Fox, Senior Lecturer and Director of the Sports Journalism Concentration, Journalism Department
