Sport Literature and Communications

Sport Literature and Communications is an introductory study of the portrayal of sports, as well as leisure games, and their description through written and photographic essays in works of both prose and poetry. The principle objective of the course is to examine the nature and development of sport through a variety of sources, written and oral. A secondary objective is to develop critical thinking skills about the role and significance of sport in society and culture. Literature and communications are a reflection of humanity, its joys and sorrows, and its dreams. Sport has been defined as a microcosm of life. Thus, sport literature and communications are a reflection of life in both writing and storytelling. (Same as EN 222). Prerequisite: EN 101 and EN 102

Note: This course is a requirement for majors in Sport Management and may be taken as an elective for all other students. It will not fulfill the literature requirement in the General Education. Credit, 3 hours.
