Hey Guys, In June 2013 I will be done with high school. I need some help from you guys to tell me which colleges are well suited for my career path. I would like to Be a Professional Football Analyst. So Sports Journalism, Broadcasting and Communications would be involved.
Some places I have thought about are
1. CARIMAC - Jamaica 2. Ryerson - Canada 3. FIU - FL,USA 4. Syracuse - NY, USA 5. USF - FL, USA 6. University of Maryland - Maryland, USA
Yeah I've heard Syracuse has a good sports journalism school, though be prepared for lots of snow there. Northwestern (just north of Chicago) is a very good school, supposedly has a very good journalism program and I know someone who goes there and is involved with journalism, broadcasting, and sports. Obviously we get some snow here as well (and cold). Don't know much about any of the others, though obviously Florida would be closer to home and USF seems to have quite a few Jamaicans.
University of Missouri #5 Columbia) Rank #3 in the Us..My son attend their Honors College...For Journalism ..Check them our.. Good Weather..Not as Cold As Evanston-(north-western Not as expensive as Northwestern..
If its not the most popular, Ryerson probably has the best journalism program in Canada. It seems like most people on TV in Toronto studied there!
Not true. Carlton in Ottawa, and Dalhousie in Halifax have very strong programs.
In the States, Columbia is the elite program, but it is difficult to get into.
Columbia is Ivy league University in the heart of Manhattan, NYC. Academic scholarships are handed out at the Ivy League Universities but no sports scholarships. The reality is any degree from any of those Ivy League schools, carry weight. Then you have the Universities that are just below the Ivy League, and so forth. More extensive research will show that there are more than just a handful of schools have great sports journalism programs out of the thousands of Universities in USA especially.
Loc: Gainesville, Fl, USA
Doan figet di Gators dem, UF mi alma mater (CISE - software Engineering ah wi dat) . Bes ting ah Floridah!! an di college hab a station suh di broadcasting an such di like covered. Check it out, nuff yard deh bout from time to.
Syracuse, would be my choice. Cuse, fan base in sports is almost pro like since that general region is without professional sports. You would be close to Toronto, NYC, Pittsburgh, Buffalo, Philly, Boston, and Rochester. These are all big sporting cities. At Cuse, you have the dome and 35k fans for basketball, 50k for football, crazy Lacrosse support, and a decent soccer team. Rochester 50miles away has USA D2 soccer in the Rhinos. Ivy league sports is at Ithaca, NY. Point is you would have ample opportunities for internships in any of these Markets/Cities. Most importantly, Cuse was listed by 2011 Princeton review as the best northeast USA school for broadcasting communications. My coworkers son is a senior there. He interned with the school's radio and tv stations. Also with WFAN NYC. At the end of the day its your call, since all these top schools are becoming mind numbingly expensive. However, I think it is still a prudently wise investment.
