Sports Studies

Bellarmine’s six-credit-hour minor in sports studies is intended to increase students’ understanding and appreciation of the history, psychology and business of sports. The minor enables students to explore the area of sports through the lens of subjects grounded in the liberal arts as well as professional studies. Concurrent with the minor, the Institute for Media, Culture and Ethics plays a critical role in providing supplemental activities such as sports-related seminars and guest speakers.

The minor is consistent with the University’s mission to “foster a thoughtful, informed consideration of serious ideas, values and issues – time honored and contemporary – across a broad range of compelling concerns.”
