This course will explore topics related to social contexts within a sports science framework. The information covered in this course will enable students to explore a range of social and cultural influences on key aspects of health and well-being from a sports science lens. Specifically, the course covers topics such as sociocultural, physical and intellectual ability, race and ethnicity, genetics, gender, ergogenic aids, and developmental influences on athlete health, performance, and sport/physical activity. The discussions and course activities will not only be applicable to sports science topics, but may be translated more broadly to other disciplines (such as humanities, psychology, sociology), and students’ personal and professional interests.
