Sports journalism (with an in-depth study of a foreign language)
The Faculty of Journalism of the Presidential Academy is opening a new bachelor’s degree profile named “Sports Journalism with an in-depth study of a foreign language”
Our goal is to train high-class specialists who are aware of the social role of sports journalism in modern Russia, with a deep knowledge of the functioning of sports media.

If you have a professional or a higher education, you will also have to take an entrance test. The admission will also involve a more creative exam (an essay on a given topic and a test).
Competences and advantages
We offer a practice-oriented course that allows our students to acquire universal skills in journalism and in media-management. We are also planning on forming PR specialists, who will be able to work in sports.
