Become Sports Career-Ready

Curry College's sports communication concentration will prepare you for exciting careers in this fun and ever-evolving field. Students who graduate with a communication degree with a focus in sports communication will have the knowledge and tool belt to work in a variety of settings, from the traditional to the cutting-edge, including sports writing, reporting, and blogging, sports radio/TV broadcasting and live streaming, sports social media and digital content creation, sports promotion and sales, sports photojournalism, and much more!

Explore Endless Field Experiences

Outside the classroom, students have endless opportunities when it comes to hands-on experiences in the form of internships - Boston, Massachusetts (a.k.a "Titletown" for the past two decades and running) and its surrounding areas - including Foxboro, MA, Providence, RI, Bristol, CT, Cape Cod, and everywhere in between - are the home to dozens of professional, amateur, and college-level sports teams (including 16 NCAA sports to cover here on campus), as well as prominent local and national sports media. Our students have interned at the likes of the Boston Bruins, Boston Celtics, Boston Globe, Boston Herald, Boston Red Sox, Cape Cod Baseball League, ESPN, MLB.com, NESN, New England Patriots, New England Revolution, and The Sports Hub (98.5 FM) to name a few.

Other COM Concentrations:

You may also create your own concentration through our Individually Initiated Concentration option. Examples of IICs include photojournalism, event planning, and political media management.
