Steven Ralston, Dean , School of Communication and the Arts at Marist College, continues his campus travels in this latest installment of his videologue series. Here, he learns about Sports Communication at Marist College.
Sports Communication takes students beyond team scores and statistics. It requires that students read and analyze sports in new ways, critically examining the role of sports in society and considering such areas as gender, race, and public policy in the context of sports. The program combines ethical and theoretical depth with practical writing and public presentation skills. It further prepares students for careers in sports information and journalism by requiring an internship in the field.
