The program’s unique, interdisciplinary combination of critical studies, business, and practice sets it apart from all other sports media programs. The Seton Hall program incorporates all aspects of the sports media industry, including business, management, marketing, public relations, and social media, and help students develop skills to critically analyze the role of sports media within society and culture.
