SOCI 280: Sociology of Sport

3 credit hours

This course introduces students to critical individual, socio-cultural, and institutional dynamics of sport, including how social statuses (e.g., race, class, gender, and sexual orientation) frame experiences within sport and how other social structurers (e.g., culture, family, education, politics, and economy) intersect with sport. Special emphasis will be given to the inequalities, commodification, and consumption of sport.
