Required Courses

9 Credits

  • AMST 21000 - Sport in American Culture: This course engages critical questions regarding sport and its role in American culture. It examines the ways sport serves as a key site for the study of larger social issues and social problems, including how race, gender, social class and other social locations are simultaneously reproduced and challenged in and through sport. The course also explores the relationships between sport and other major social institutions, such as the economy, education, politics, and media. Typically offered Fall Spring. 

  • AMST 32500 - Sports, Technology, and Innovation: This course examines how science, technology, engineering, and data analysis reshape sports. Traditionally, sports have been understood as competitions between humans. However, recent technoscientific developments have altered this arrangement and have changed the ways sports are played. We have reached a place where heated competitions not only take place on the fields of play, but also within scientific and engineering laboratories. The fundamental question this project-based course will address is: how will new and emerging scientific knowledge and technological innovations transform sports? We will explore topics ranging from football, baseball, basketball, and soccer, to e-sports, fantasy sports, and sports analytics. Typically offered Fall Spring Summer.
