Sports Communication Minor

The Sports Communication minor offers students the opportunity to develop practical communication skills for the sports industry. This minor complements skills Columbia students are developing in many majors (e.g., Business and Entrepreneurship, Cinema and Television Arts, Design, Photography, Cultural Studies). It includes two foundational communication courses and four courses focusing on either the history, the business, or the media coverage of sports.

As a result of successfully completing the program requirements, students should be able to:

  • understand the development, current state, and emerging trends of sports communication and its audiences;
  • create communication content for the sports industry across a variety of media forms, appropriate to specific audiences, purposes, contents, and contexts; and
  • accomplish goals with a critical awareness of sports communication practices.
