Sports Ethics—new course from Professor Klein

Sports Ethics thumb
To be offered in the Fall 2008 semester. In this course students will consider a range of ethical, political, and economic issues about sports: Why are sports so universally popular? What physical and psychological values do they provide? Does the playing of sports develop good character? Why are many sports fans so fanatical? What is the proper place of sports in higher education? Is there anything wrong with ticket-“scalping”? How should mega-sports complexes be funded—politically or through the market? See the Sports Ethics flyer.
