THEME: Critically Examining the World’s Game in London and Seville
What role does sport play in a society? Given their deep sporting history and current success on the world stage, London and Seville provide students rich and unique opportunities to investigate how sport and society intersect as well as how globalization impacts each.
The program will immerse students in sporting cultures where athletes, coaches, fans and leaders in the sport industry are among the most knowledgeable and passionate in the world. Along with classroom activities, guest speakers, site visits, and field experiences will encourage students to explore first hand British and Spanish culture. A rewarding aspect of the program will be a service-learning project in Seville that will engage students in coaching, teaching, and learning with and from local school children.
