Understanding Physical Activity

Module Leader: Dr. Jim Cherrington

Module Information

This module is a first step in familiarizing you with sociological understandings about contemporary issues surrounding physical activity. The aim of the module is to introduce you to the key debates about social inequality in physical activity by focusing specifically on social stratification, the life course and health and wellbeing. The module thus encourages you to question how contemporary forms of physical activity are shaped by a range of social and cultural factors.
