While sport can have enormous benefits to both the practitioner and the community, such as creating unity and promoting positive social values, there are also practices within sport which can be considered to be highly questionable, even unethical. This subject explores the ethical dimensions of a practitioner's role within sport, by developing the student's awareness and appreciation of such issues. This subject will develop the student's ability to critically analyse many issues, practices and relationships within the sport profession, such as performance enhancing drugs and the ethical use and misuse of technology. The aim of this subject is to promote an ethical understanding of the practices of sport and the student functioning within those roles. Through successful completion of the subject, the student will have the ability to question their own morals, integrity and suppositions as future exercise science, sports media and sports management professionals.
