‘ESPNization of America’ course resonates with Quinnipiac students

How has ESPN influenced American culture?

At Quinnipiac University in Hamden, Conn., a 2011 fall semester course considers that question.

Professor John Morra teaches the Wednesday night class on “how ESPN has changed the way our pluralistic American Community views sports, mass media and popular culture and has served as a unifying factor,” according to the course catalog. Morra believes it’s the only course of its kind in the country – but if any of our Front Row fans know of similar offerings at colleges and universities, please let us know!

Recently, ESPN senior coordinating producer Dwayne Bray was a guest speaker. Check out the video above to get a sample of the course.
