The sport world includes stakeholders of all ages, lovers of all sports, and fans on all continents.
The communication world has exploded and can reach a worldwide audience faster than ever before.
And what if you got the opportunity to be an expert at both?
I came to Washington State University unsure of what I wanted to study. I felt overburdened by the amount of options of majors and minors available to me as I began my collegiate journey.
As a freshmen, I was excited, motivated, and eager to start this new chapter of education and life.
Now as a senior, I am thankful, overwhelmed, and forever grateful that the last few years included a major and minor combining two of my biggest passions: communication and sport.
Let’s fast forward to today- I am enrolled in Sport Management 379: Media & Communication in Sport. I am extremely excited for this class as it is quite the gift to have my major and minor collide in one course. One expectation I have for this course is to learn how my writing, public speaking, and web skills can positively impact a sport brand, cause, or organization’s target audience. Another expectation I have for this course is to learn successful pieces of strategic communication plans to help sport organizations to reach their desired outcomes, goals, and mission. An additional expectation I have for this course is to increase my confidence in what I have learned the last four years. Since I graduate in May, I hope that what I learn in this class, and the last four years for that matter, can transfer over into the real world.
