Media Training

When San Diego State University faculty or staff members are quoted as topic experts in the news ― be it local, regional or national ― it raises the profile of the university. The media relations team has designed a media training presentation appropriate for both those who are new to working with media and those who may need a refresher.


We offer several trainings each semester. If you are interested in attending a media training, please contact SDSU Media Relations.


During the 1 ½ hour-long training sessions, we cover:

  • Working with the media relations team
  • How to prepare for interviews
  • The differences between print and broadcast interviews and challenges related to each one
  • How to handle tough questions and stay on topic
  • Tips and tricks for getting your point across
  • Your rights and responsibilities
