Looking for top schools that offer a sports journalism major.

Newhouse School of Journalism at Syracuse is great for Sports Journalism. They have a who's who list of famous journalists graduating from there, starting with Bob Costas.

I wouldn't know why someone would want a degree specifically in "sports" journalism. I'd go to a Div. I university with a strong school of Journalism and get a degree there, while working for the sports section of the campus newspaper or doing sports on the campus news broadcasts. Sportswriting is often considered one of the lowest rungs of the journalism ladder (that was my career goal in and just after college), and having the broad-based journalism degree would add legitimacy to your resume. The suggestion of Syracuse is right on target - also Northwestern, North Carolina, Georgia. The Fiske Guide to colleges has a list in the front of the strongest Journalism programs.

You can add Missouri-Columbia as a top journalism school.
I agree with those who suggest going to the best possible journalism program and not specifically for sports journalism. You can always do sports if you choose. Or, like, say Keith Olbermann (MSNBC) or Darryn Kagan (CNN) you can start in sports and then go into other things.

Premiere school of journalism in the nation.
Alumns: Dick Enberg (CBS Sports), Jane Pauley (NBC News), Ernie Pyle (World News War Correspondent)
Excellent job placement program.
