This unit follows a module format wherein it addresses issues concerning sport, youth and deviance. By looking at trends including race and gender in sport, the impact of technology, work, and alcohol on youth, and examples of historical and contemporary deviance, students will develop an understanding of how these can be addressed sociologically. Importance is given to whether individual choice is the most significant determinant in outcomes or whether we are impacted by the structural influences in our lives.
