Grad School for Sports Journalism

<p>Hi All,</p>

<p>I am heading into my senior year at a liberal arts school in the northeast and want to pursue a career in Sports Journalsim. I have a GPA around 3.5 (History Major) and have been the Sports Editor of the school's newspaper since Spring term of Freshman year. I write for my section every week. Also, I am the Sports Director of the school's radio station, and have my own blog that covers the school's hockey team.</p>

<p>Internships-wise I have worked for the TV station of a MLB team in the northeast, and in the editorial department for a big-time consumer publication/website in New York.</p>

<p>I guess my dream job is to be a beat reporter for a professional sports team (hockey and/or baseball) or a sports columnist for a major publication.</p>

<p>There doesn't seem to be too much information out there about what grad schools are good for people who want to become sports journalists. There seems to be a Master's in Sports Journalism at Indiana, but there's not much information about it. Boston University seems to have something with a sports reporting track, and the same goes for Syracuse. I know schools like Columbia, Northwestern, and Missouri are considered the best J-Schools in the country, but is it worth going to a place like that for sports journalism? Could I even get into a top flight J-School? (I have yet to take the GRE).</p>

<p>If anybody has any ideas on where a person like me could/should look to go to school please respond. Any information would be most helpful.</p>
