Overview

Sports as an industry is quite appealing to the youth. Making a lucrative career in the field of sports is not a piece of cake but at the same time; it will also not leave you disappointed. Sports is the kind of a field that requires you to have a lot of experience and talent of course. It’s a common misconception that envisages that sports as a career option is only meant for people who have a knack for fitness or those who have playing oriented talent. But in reality, it is not so. Hence, it’s important to do away with the misconception by elaborating widely on Sports as a field of study and a career option. Sport is a highly broad concept. The studies involved in sports are in a greater number. Sports as a field of study is manifold. This field of study is widely known as Sports Studies.

Categories of Study

Sports Studies are generally segmented into two types of studies. These are the two main categories of the same. They are popularly known as:

  • Sports Science
  • Sports Management

Then, a student interested in the same field can also consider opting for sports journalism. Sports journalism in India is not yet a thriving and lucrative field for the new graduates wanting to make a lucrative career. However, in the western nations, sports journalism has immense scope in terms of exposure, experience, and employment. It is thriving and fast-paced.

Sports refer to the act of playing a sport that involves a physical effort by a person. Whereas, sports studies refer to studying the business side of sports. In other words, this means, looking at sports through the lens of history, economics, business, management, socio-culture aspects, gender, race, ethnicity, etc. apart from the physical act of playing sports. These courses involve fitness and training that gives us an idea of how the sports industry functions in today’s world.

The above-mentioned fields are the popular fields that can be considered in order to have a degree in sports studies. But getting a bachelor degree in Sports Studies is usually an ideal way to get started. A bachelor degree will help you understand different aspects related to Sports and apply them practically. These aspects include on-field ones as well as the ones which surround sports. One is exposed to the skill set that one can consider equipping him/herself with in order to become a key player. Apart from this, one also learns about the professionalism which is evident in the sports industry and further learning about the functioning of the same.

Types of Degrees

A bachelor degree in Sports Studies is quite underrated when it comes to learning things that are considered essential and highly important.
