Ohio University

International Development and Sport certificate

The use of sport as a vehicle for promoting and facilitating a wide range of social and welfare needs is a well-established feature in numerous countries. It has a unique power to create unity and bind people to a goal. Despite this, it has seldom been used in a development context or as a development lever for change. This concentration focuses on the nexus of sport and development and is designed to provide students with an understanding of how sport can promote positive change and facilitate development among seriously divided societies, as well as promote discipline, dedication, and community among segments of populations. This concentration helps prepare professionals to study sport from a critical development perspective.

This concentration has a required set of classes to complete it, and is different from other concentrations in this way.
