SCQF Level 10 (Year 4 Undergraduate)
This option half-course provides for a detailed social historical analysis of sport in Scotland since the late 18th Century, setting activities in the context of the broader social and economic changes in Scottish society. It examines the evolution, diffusion, and marginalisation of forms of sport in Scotland by focusing on case studies of specific forms of sport (football, shinty, Highland Games, golf). The aim of the course is to develop a deeper knowledge and understanding of the place of sport in Scottish social history.
