“European Sport Organizations in Dublin & London”

May 9 – 20, 2018

United Kingdom

From an academic perspective Ireland & the U.K offer fantastic opportunities for students to visit and study European Sport, Health, History & Culture. The origins of many of the world’s most popular sports today lay in the codification of traditional British games. Ireland provides a great contrast to the U.K in that they play traditional Gaelic Games such as Gaelic football & Hurling as well as non-traditional games exported from Britain such as soccer & rugby. This program will take students inside the European Model of Club Sports where they will receive firsthand experience at various facilities, clubs, universities and other sporting organizations and businesses.

Dr. Stacy Warner will be leading this exciting program, which will include earning up to six Undergraduate credits (KINE 4003/4301) or graduate credits (KINE 6500/6803).
