First, you will need to have your high school diploma, and then you will need to earn your bachelor's degree in English, Journalism, of Communications - this will take you approximately four years. Now, while you are earning your bachelor's degree you will need to focus your studies on the field of sport journalism - making sure yous papers, essays, and other school work are focused on sports journalism.

You also might want to work as an intern with a local newspaper, magazine, television or radio station - specifically within their sport department - while you are earning your degree.

Once you have completed your bachelor's degree you will have one of two options - you can either start working as a journalist or you can go back to schools and earn your master's degree in journalism/sports journalism, which will take you an additional 2 years.

Both of these are excellent optiona, but you will just have to assess your situation following the completion of you bachelor's degree to determine which option is best for you.

With that said, I also wanted to let you know that while there are not many schools who offer these types of programs, there are some schools who offer undergraduate and graduate degrees specifically sports journalism.
