Sports, Culture and Society is a specially designed GE course which will appeal to those who wish to learn more about how sport relates to their lives. We are surrounded by sports – as players, spectators, viewers, and readers. However, few of us stop to consider the theories, concepts, and methods needed in order to analyze the pervasive nature of sport and the enormous influence it has on our lives. This GE course attempts to go beyond the obvious aspects of our knowledge of sports and has students contextualize their knowledge using a cross-disciplinary approach.
Learning activities include mini-lectures, reading discussion workshops, small group discussions and demonstration, group presentation and projects, individual written assignment, and reading, especially using online resources.
