Sport has acquired in the last decades of the last century and the early years of XXI an extraordinary importance. It can be said that sport has suffer a deep transformation from a merely marginal activity that it only interested fans and sports institutions, to a more than relevant presence in all media. Certainly sports news today occupy more than half the space of radio and television news programs around the world and its presence in written newspapers has increased significantly.

There are, however, several aspects of sport that lead us to exciting challenges and that urgently need to be examined and solved since they are not only of interest to the sports world itself, but also to society as a whole. In this sense, the course aims to address in a practical way such debated issues as doping, violence, racial discrimination, the impact of technology, the incardination of transgender athletes, the limitation of certain fundamental rights, sports nationalism, e-sports, match-fixing and legal and illegal bets or the transformation of sport due to big data.
