SOC 316 - Sociology of Sport (3)


Sports represent much more than athletic competition. A sociological study of sports allow students to better understand issues of power, group cohesiveness, fairness and justice as they are manifested in class, race and ethnicity, sex and gender.  The Sociology of Sport will be explored in a range of global and local contexts including topics like the World Cup, professional and collegiate athletics, and pick-up basketball.

Prerequisite: SOC 109  
Offered even spring terms.
