The Department of Sports Studies encourages all students to pursue athletics and to recognize their contribution to well-being. More than half of the student body participates in some portion of the program offered by the department: intercollegiate athletics, intramural and club sports, and special courses.
The intercollegiate athletic program offers ten varsity sports for women (soccer, tennis, volleyball, cross-country, basketball, swimming and diving, softball, indoor & outdoor track, and golf) and 10 varsity sports for men (football, soccer, cross-country, basketball, swimming and diving, baseball, tennis, indoor & outdoor track, and golf).
The College also has several intramural sports, such as volleyball, basketball, softball, indoor soccer, and other events. The College also offers club sports such as Ultimate Frisbee, fencing, women's lacrosse, equestrian, and women's and co-ed water polo.
Courses offered by the department provide the theory and skills necessary for the administration of athletic programs, athletic training, coaching of selected sports and health and fitness.
Note: The department offers no major in physical education and athletics. All courses are graded S/U except SPST 210, 255, and 260.
