Sports, Recreation and Society

SOC 362

Info tab content
In both the U.S. and around the globe, formal and informal sports are a key component of social life. This course will help you become an academically literate consumer of and/or participant in sports. Students will consider their own experiences and compare them to accounts of sports in a variety of different community settings. Our discussions will cover both the individual and social benefits of participation in athletics, as well as the risks and value distortions that sports can entail. Students will leave the course better equipped to appreciate the ethical, social, and political undercurrents of societal debates regarding sports.
