Description

Sport’s powerful role in cultures across the globe is nearly indisputable. For better or for worse, we learn about important concepts such as gender, race, sexuality, nationalism, relationship, and identity through sport and games. As such, sport communication has established itself as a legitimate area of study at the international, national, regional, and even on-campus level. This course introduces students to the major concepts, theories, and methodological perspectives that Communication and Media scholars bring to the study of sport and sport communication.
