Carmical Sports Media Institute created at UGA

Sports Media @ UGA is expanding with the establishment of the John Huland Carmical Sports Media Institute. Plans are underway for a sports media-specific study abroad program, an annual lecture series and periodic symposia. Sports Media Certificate students will be able to receive financial assistance with travel and housing costs related to internships and other experiential learning opportunities. In addition, the one-off opportunity that saw UGA students in sports media and visual journalism covering the 2016 Summer Paralympic Games in partnership with The Associated Press will become a perennial offering. Institute funding also will allow our High School Sports Broadcast Program to operate in perpetuity. The program, launched in 2019, provides equipment and trains students in underrepresented and/or underserved communities across Georgia to produce live broadcasts of their school’s sports events.
