The Erasmus Mundus Joint Master of Sports Ethics and Integrity (MAiSI) will equip students for high-level careers in sports administration and governance, concentrating on the development of stronger ethical sports cultures, and developing tools for sports integrity and compliance. Students will receive training that enables them to identify ethical issues, engage in ethical thinking, and translate decisions into ethical actions - the three core skills required to develop sports integrity.
It brings together high-level scholars in a consortium of Higher Education Institutions with a focus on vocationally orientated concerns.
- Semester 1 comprises the advanced study of sports ethics, ethical theory, and sports policy and practice, including anti-doping, illegal gambling, and match-fixing at SU.
- Semester 2 focuses on the experience of sport as a social practice in terms of values and norms such as athlete welfare, child protection, and safeguarding, equality, integrity, and fair play across abled-bodied and Paralympic sport delivered by staff from CUNI and KUL. Students also gain research methods knowledge and competencies and will gain a sophisticated appreciation of Olympic and Paralympic philosophy, ethics, and organization (UoP). A summer school is run by (UoP) where students from both years mix to form a Sport Integrity network community, where common themes and interests are pursued, and where Year 1 students are matched by research topic to their supervisors from within the Consortium.
- In Semester 3 the MAiSI focuses on organizational issues of sports ethics and integrity focusing on economic, legal, and managerial aspects and instruments for the good governance of sport (JGU and UPF). The student also commences their dissertation studies this semester and focus on it during Semester 4 where they are hosted by consortium partners in relation to their subject specialism.
The MAiSI graduates will benefit from opportunities to undertake practical placements within the partner's extensive network of advisory bodies, federations, non-governmental organizations, policy-makers, and commercial organizations, as well as from extensive international collaboration and training opportunities, preparing them for decisively taking moral responsibility from the inside and the outside of the sports world.
