Contemporary sports are more than just a pastime. They are a billion-dollar industry, an art, an international obsession, and a window into human culture and the world today. Why do people love (and sometimes hate) sports? How can exploring major events like the FIFA World Cup, the Super Bowl, and the Olympics help us better understand politics, culture, and the society we live in? If you wish to learn more about sport in all its many forms, this is a course for you.

Completion of this course requires regular access to a laptop or desktop computer with working microphone and webcam, as well as a reliable internet connection.

This Fixed-Paced course incorporates a blend of synchronous and asynchronous elements. Students and teacher meet live via zoom on a regular weekly schedule. In addition, students complete coursework including guided readings, interactive videos, text and video-based discussion threads, problem sets, individual and collaborative projects, and so on. While these activities are time-flexible, teachers sequence them with weekly deadlines to help students keep on track and encourage and support the development of productive time management skills.
