BA Classical Civilisation (2005)

Summary: Adam now works in sports journalism and tells us how his degree was beneficial to securing his job.

Overview

Shortly after graduation I secured my first job in sports journalism, and have remained in the field ever since.

My career has taken in companies such as Sky Sports, popular websites including Football365 and official FA and UEFA publications. My particular area of expertise is the sports industry – the administration, financing and management of sports clubs, teams and leagues. My work has taken me around the world, via a long-term stay in France, to my current position in London.

Throughout my career, I believe my choice of degree has been nothing but beneficial, with employers generally intrigued by a subject that guarantees the acquisition of a wide range of skills, rewards hard work and a willingness to engage in in-depth and extensive research, and demonstrates independence of thought.
