Summary

Sport cannot be understood without an appreciation of its history. Taught by expert staff based in DMU's International Centre for Sports History and Culture (ICSHC), the only centre of its kind in the world, this MA offers you a flexible, interactive way to develop your knowledge and understanding of all aspects of modern sport from its traditional to its present day form. Issues you will investigate include:
- What are the origins of modern sport?
- Why has sport become so culturally and globally important?
- How can sport help us understand society and different cultures?
- What primary sources are available to historians of sport and how can they be used?

While the course may be taken online and by distance learning course, you will be invited to attend optional seminars and conferences organised by the ICSHC and affiliates. We encourage you to become part of our wider research community at the ICSHC, either in person or via social media.

You will benefit from the ICSHC’s extensive network of sporting and cultural partnerships with local, national and global sporting bodies.. These partnerships, along with our academic team’s combination of expertise and experience, will provide you with a challenging and rewarding intellectual experience leading to a valuable qualification.
