Community, culture, and commerce.
Sport is a rapidly expanding industry that intersects with education, culture, commerce, health and tourism. As an internationally-recognised applied discipline, the Sport Development and Management major is founded on the global growth in sport science degrees and sport management specialisations. It has three orientations:
- It is concerned with the quality of organisations and the societal conditions that support sport participation.
- It revolves around the enhancement of individuals and the understanding of psychological variables that help development and performance.
- It attends to sport’s growing links with community objectives such as wellness, social integration, and economic renewal.
Papers examine the spectrum of people, institutions, and policies that influence the structure, management, and experience of sport.
