Students interested in producing and covering sports have been a strong subset of students in mass communication and journalism programs. Faculty have developed strategies to provide experiential opportunities for sports-minded students in their programs. Immersion approaches within the classroom, co-curricular partnerships inside the university and partnerships with external sports organizations have all been successful. The panel will discuss the sports initiatives that provide experiential learning for students at their institutions.
