Master of Arts (MA) in Leisure Studies - Interdisciplinary Basis of Leisure Science LEIS 5592   Interdisciplinary Basis of Leisure Science
Leisure behaviour is determined by a complex multiplicity of factors including socialization, social-economic status, demographics, politics, economics, motives, perceptions, attitudes, personality and situational determinants. This course provides an opportunity to analyze leisure behaviour including play, sport, cultural activities, by means of an interdisciplinary perspective. The course is based on social science theory applied to the study of leisure, along with historical analyses, and social and cross-cultural comparisons. A critical evaluation of leisure research is presented throughout the course.
