Credit Hours:

The exploration of the many ways that sport and other forms of physical activity help us understand the human condition. We will use games, sports, and other activities to examine the biological and historical foundations of physical activity and consider the cultural, socioeconomic, and environmental dimensions of activity and sports in today’s society. Students will develop skills that will help them interpret information and apply course themes to contemporary issues.
