Sport Studies Doctoral Student Opening Fall 2016 - University of Tennessee

Sport Studies Doctoral Student Opening Fall 2016 - University of Tennessee

Department of Kinesiology, Recreation, and Sport Studies
PhD program in Kinesiology and Sport Studies with a concentration in sport studies and a specialization in socio-cultural studies

The PhD concentration in Sport Studies with a specialization in socio-cultural studies has an opening for a doctoral student for the fall semester 2016. This position includes a tuition waiver, a monthly stipend, and health insurance. The candidate will teach socio-cultural foundation courses in the Sport Management curriculum each semester.

Possible research areas include but are not limited to the following:
·      International sport/globalization
·      Sport diplomacy
·      Women and sport
·      Sport in outreach and engagement
·      Sport and religion
·      Sport and (sexual) violence

We encourage applications of candidates with an interest in conducting research in areas associated with UT’s Center for Sport, Peace, and Society.

The Sport Studies concentration in the doctoral program primarily prepares graduates for positions as faculty members in higher education. The coursework for the program is developed between the student and the faculty advisor to meet the educational goals of the student. Students have the flexibility to develop a program that allows them to focus on the area of study in which they have an interest.

Doctoral students will receive training in research design and methodology and are expected to conduct research outside the requirements of the classroom. The program consists of 15 hours within the concentration, 18 hours of research courses, nine hours within the specialization and a minimum of six hours in an outside or cognate area.

For profiles of current PhD students, see: http://krss.utk.edu/graduate/current-doctoral-students/

The application deadline for priority consideration is January 1. The deadline for international applications is February 1. We strongly encourage early applications to compete for additional funding opportunities with early deadlines. The Graduate School offers a number of competitive fellowships, including the Lori Mayer Re-Entry Women’s Graduate Fellowship and Diversity Fellowships. For more information, see:http://gradschool.utk.edu/fellowships.shtml. The most capable PhD students might have the opportunity to compete for a Chancellor’s Fellowship with high research expectations.
