SPORTS MEDIA @ UGA

WHO WE ARE
The Carmical Sports Media Institute at the University of Georgia offers the Southeastern Conference’s only dedicated program of study for undergraduates interested in sports reporting and writing, broadcasting, social and digital media, and media relations and communication. We use the press boxes and sidelines at UGA, around Athens and in nearby Atlanta as our real-world learning labs. We teach students the enduring fundamentals of sports journalism and communications, and we train them to adapt to the industry’s evolving platforms and tools. Our graduates are working at ESPN, The Washington Post, the SEC Network, The Athletic, various NFL and MLB teams, Turner Sports, Bleacher Report, Fox Sports, the NFL Network, Atlanta United, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, and many local TV stations and newspapers.
