KI 2420 - Women in Sport: Historical and Contemporary Issues


The course introduces students to the history of women in sport and explores the timeline of key events in this history as well as contemporary issues and events influencing the role of girls and women in sport. It will provide students with the opportunity to gain understanding and knowledge of the dramatic changes that have taken place in North America and around the world with regard to women in the sporting arena. In addition, students will have the opportunity to recognize that this “sporting arena” not only affects women and men with regard to competitive sport, but also impacts social, economic, and psychological arenas as well. Perceptions, attitudes, and the roles of women have been in constant change throughout history and in this class students will learn how “sport” has had a dramatic impact on this constant change. Prerequisites: Minimum of 30 credits earned. Offered every other year. (4 Credits)
