Sports studies is an interdisciplinary program that explores the world through the lens of sport.
Few social constructs have a broader impact than sport. Sport can be a powerful agent of change—sport is big business, entertainment, fitness, emotional well-being, and the way we socialize and educate young people about race, gender, class, and various notions of character (e.g., effort, attitude, grit, and fair play). Sport contributes to national pride, can serve political agendas, and often takes on religious fervor.
