As well as a number of journalism practice modules already offered on the long-running MA in Journalism course, the sports pathway offers new modules on Sports Writing, Sports Communications, Sports Broadcasting and the Sociology of Sport.

Course leader Dr Fergal Quinn said he hoped the new offering would  give a clearer pathway for people who are passionate about sports journalism and would like to learn more about all facets of it.

According to RTE’s Jacqui Hurley said the strong sporting pedigree of University of Limerick made it a natural fit for extending into the world of Sports Journalism.
