Graduate Programs in the Philosophy of Sport

In the comments section of the last post, an undergrad inquired about the graduate programs that exist which focus on the philosophy of sport. Those who teach or study in such a program, or simply know of one or more, please give some basic information in the comments section of this post.

It's possible to do doctoral work in the Philosophy of Sport at Penn State under Scott Kretchmar - or at least it was last I checked.

Here are some of the options in the UK, from Mike McNamee:

Cardiff Univeristy (Andrew Edgar)

Leeds University (Jim Parry)

Swansea University (me)

University of Gloucestershire (Emily Ryall)

University of Wales Institute Cardiff (Carwyn JOnes, Alun Hardman, Lisa Edwards)

Edge Hill University (Leon CUlbertson)

BUT

in the UK we have thesis only - so don't expect lots of grad courses. If that suits you, any of these would be fine.
