Sports, Science and Society is an interdisciplinary minor that gives students a well-rounded view of the rapidly growing sports industry.
Sports has a prominent and growing place in U.S. popular culture and imagination. It has become the subject of academic study across a wide range of disciplines, both as a distinct area of study and one in which it serves as a vehicle to illustrate and explore theories. Students choosing this minor will have the opportunity to study the industry through disciplines that include economics, psychology, marketing, management, data science, and religious studies, among others.
With its location near Boston—one of the country’s most successful sports cities— Stonehill provides its students with a vast array of internship opportunities in professional sports.
