CanadaCristiano Ronaldo’s influence on global society can now be studied in university. The University of British Columbia Okanagan has opened up a fourth-year sociology course on the Real Madrid star that will explore the sociological importance of soccer and its impact on the rural and urban regions worldwide. There have been courses similar to this in the past, including a course in 2000 on David Beckham. Luis LM Aguiar, an associate sociology professor at the school, says students shouldn’t expect all fun and games, and serious work will be involved in the class.
