Through a mixture of on-campus and online courses, students in the Sports Media and Storytelling program at Wake Forest University will gain not only advanced skills in video production and storytelling, but also a keen understanding of all of the ways sports content is produced, distributed and consumed in today’s crowded arena including insight into social media and marketing campaigns.
Under the expert guidance of Creative Director Peter Gilbert – one of the filmmakers behind the award-winning documentary Hoop Dreams, and Chris Sheridan – a cross-platform journalist and media executive with some of America’s biggest media brands – graduates leave the program with the confidence and skills needed to tell great stories, the reel of work to prove it, and the media savvy and deep network of connections needed to land in today’s crowded marketplace.
