Sports Communication

With a strong core of communication classes already offered, sports communications majors also receive the benefit of adding sports specific courses and projects in promotions, writing, and data analytics to their repertoire. Optimization of communication in the context of fan engagement, smart stadiums, social media, and other issues are regularly explored. In addition, UE has a contract with ESPN3, and many students gain invaluable work experience in the sports field throughout their undergraduate experience.
