SM 3120 (KI 3120) - Sport in the Global Society


This course explores the ways in which sport both reflects and shapes culture around the world. It examines the extent to which sport reinforces and/or resists dominant values in the United States and in other countries around the globe. In this course, students will examine the history of modern sport, as well as social theories used to analyze sport in its broadest context. Students will analyze the connections and challenges surrounding sport at various levels, including youth, interscholastic, intercollegiate, professional, and international. Specific sub topics will include the relationship of sport to violence; politics; economics; gender, race and ethnicity; deviance; and media relations. The overall goal is to assist students in a cultural and social analysis of sport, and to illustrate how sport and society both influence and challenge human conditions. This upper‐level and writing intensive course is offered as an LAS 7  in the LAS curriculum, meeting both the outcomes of the departments of Sport & Recreation Management and Kinesiology, as well as those of the LAS. Prerequisites: 60 credits. Offered every year. (4 Credits)
