Sport and American Culture Minor

Offered jointly with the Department of History and Art History, the sport and American culture minor delves into sport’s intersection with sociology and history.

Students learn about sport’s role in culture and society, explore diversity and inclusion issues in the field, and examine how popular sports like baseball, basketball, and football influence American life.
