Sport

A Doctor of Philosophy, also known as a PhD, is a terminal degree in many areas of study. Doctor is the Latin word for teacher, implying that a PhD is necessary to be a professor in a scholar’s chosen field of interest.

What is a PhD in Sport? The degree can potentially cover many different areas. Possible research themes include ethnographic studies, economics, and sociology. Studies could cover a number of different topics, such as how different cultures react to sports, the impact that large sporting events like the Olympics have on the cities that host them or the relationship between sports and poverty. Prospective students should research universities to see what might be included in their program.

As with many humanities related fields, a PhD in Sport can often teach candidates how to make connections between different points of research. This not only improves their ability to research and write theses, but grants them a unique big-picture perspective needed in many professions.

The financial costs of PhD programs can often vary greatly depending on a number of factors. Institutions often have more information on their websites regarding potential costs, or will generally have contact information available elsewhere.

As a fairly rare advanced degree, a PhD has the potential to open lucrative career paths. There are typically many options open to a graduate with a PhD in Sport. As part of the education field, the most obvious choice would be to enter academics as a researcher or teaching professor. Other possible areas of employment include nonprofit organizations, sports governing bodies, sports policy and government organizations.

Different institutions will often have different options available for PhD candidates. If attending on-site classes isn’t an option, go to institutions’ websites to see if they have distance-learning programs available.
