Social Value

The social value of sports is great. We use sports for positive socialisation and cohesion. Through sports and exercise, people meet each other, participate in the community and develop a shared sense of values and norms. 

Sport brings people together and offers people structure in their lives. We see this reflected in a rich club life, but we also see this in self-organised sports groups in the neighbourhood and within the context of commercially organised sports. 

Sport Studies graduates recognise and use the values of sports and exercise for a social society and know how to optimise the conditions for this. 

During your first year in this programme, there are several modules in which you learn more about the social value of sports, such as:

  • The Sport World
  • Sport, Governance and Leadership
