RTS 1560 - Sports and Spirituality

Credits: 4
This course examines aspects of church history, the history of sport, philosophy, and Christian doctrine to develop a vision of sport and its relationship to Christianity. This will include an investigation of how a theology of sport can shed light on a wide range of ethical issues, including cheating and the use of performance enhancing drugs. Finally, and in keeping with the College’s Augustinian identity, mission, and vision, this course highlights the contributions of St. Augustine in order to see what lessons athletes (and sports fans) can learn from him.
Fulfills: First institutional requirement in religious and theological studies. RTS in LS Core.
