Course content

The University of Brighton provides the opportunity to study sport from a critical social science perspective drawing on sociology, history, geography, politics, philosophy and cultural studies. Students register for the Sport and Society, Sport and Media or Sport and International Development route, depending on their specialist interests.

All three routes explore the diverse and complex relationships between sport and culture, sport as a cultural form and its relationship to society. Non-sporting cultural phenomena, such as leisure and popular culture, can also be studied within the embrace of an analysis of leisure cultures.

Information for international students

The University of Brighton is a thriving academic community and a genuinely international university. In 2010/11, we had 1,400 international students from over 100 countries studying at our sites in Brighton, Eastbourne and Hastings. This mixture of nationalities and cultural backgrounds gives the university a truly cosmopolitan feel.
