The Department of Telecommunications has created a new Digital Sports Production sequence in the existing Digital Production option, 

joining Digital Audio, Digital Video and Emerging Media. This sequence will create a new partnership with the School of Physical Education, Sport, and Exercise Science through courses in Sport Administration. It also will include courses from the joint Journalism/TCOM News Track.

This sequence offers skills and applications courses using digital technology to create sports content for distribution across multiple platforms, including interactive and mobile media, tablets, podcasts, and the Internet, plus television and radio. Emphasis is given to live event production. Digital Sports Production prepares students for careers in a developing and changing sports media arena.
