Few other programs in North America provide the kind of resources, opportunities and unique insights that the Master's of Specialized Journalism program offers at USC. I chose the MSJ program knowing the school's rich appreciation of sports, along with Annenberg's exceptionally modern approach to storytelling, would allow me to further develop my work in a very particular field of journalism – international sports. The hands-on skills I gained through the MSJ program, including Abode Certification through complimentary courses offered by the school, helped me distinguish my work in a field in the midst of a digital evolution. The MSJ program offered me the flexibility, versatility and a field of highly skilled practitioners to further my understanding of sports in public diplomacy and international affairs.
