What better place to learn the art of Sports Storytelling than at one of the country’s best Documentary Film Programs in the heart of ACC country. The Masters in Sports Storytelling program at Wake Forest University is a one of a kind program blending the craft and artistry of documentary film making, the sensibility to see how sports and society intersect and the up to the minute understanding of how to tell those stories so they resonate with fans across all media platforms.
“Sports are a great way to hook people into something that’s already a part of their life. We’re using sports to look at political and social issues. For me, it’s an interesting thing to teach and an interesting way to look at the world around us.”
– Peter Gilbert, Professor of Practice, Documentary Filmmaker, and Co-Director of Hoop Dreams
Housed in a dramatic downtown loft space, the program draws on its relationship inside a major university sports program, its proximity to some of the most exciting minor league sports around and its relationship with nearby industry professionals to create a learning laboratory that allows students to marry their love of sports and their passion for great storytelling.
Graduates leave the program with the confidence and skills needed to tell great stories and the media savvy and reel of work needed to land in today’s crowded marketplace.
It’s time to get in the game!
