John Curley Center for Sports Journalism
A first-of-its-kind endeavor and a recognized leader in providing opportunities for students, the Curley Center offers a powerful combination of classroom instruction and hands-on opportunity. The Center routinely welcomes top-name and thought-provoking visitors to campus in its Conversation Series.
The Center emphasizes co-curricular activities (on and off campus) and the quality of students as well as the reputation of the program have produced many one-of-a-kind experiences. Partnerships with news organizations have led to opportunities covering the Penn State baseball team’s historic visit to Cuba, Penn State football in Ireland, the Olympics, the Final Four and more.
