    Hi guys,

    So basically I'm extremely passionate about sports writing, in particular football, and I was wondering if it would be more beneficial to me to do either a degree in Sports Journalism or solely in Journalism?

    I currently write a couple of articles weekly and is definitely the career path I wish to pursue. Also, which is considered the number one sports journalism degree in the UK? Would be keen to know as I currently have only three unis (Sheffield, Cardiff and Bournemouth) which interest me at the moment.

    Cheers and any help would be much appreciated!

    If you're extremely passionate about sports journalism in particular, the University of Central Lancashire has the best course in the country for Sports Journalism. Sheffield, although its a highly credible University for Journalism, it doesn't offer a Sports Journalism course. Cardiff is also a credible University, however no Sports Journalism courses are offered. I'm not sure about Bournemouth. Personally I'm taking the traditional route of studying solely Journalism. This will give me more variety if I want to change my mind half way through the course. Out of interest, what year are you in at secondary school or college?
