About the Center

The National Sports Journalism Center was founded in 2009 as a way to connect sports media students with the broad field of sports journalism. Located on Indiana University’s Bloomington campus, the NSJC helps to connect IU students with the industry through internships, interactions with sports media professionals, extracurricular training, and sponsored work-study opportunities.

The NSJC works closely with The Media School at Indiana University to provide students with cutting-edge educational opportunities. The Center maintains an active partnership with the Sports Media Program, through which students can focus their studies on sports media, sports journalism, and other forms of sports communication.

The NSJC also engages in research related to sports journalism, through on-campus and affiliated faculty members.
