The School of Kinesiology offers two courses that include a travel component as part of the curriculum.
This course provides a participation-based learning experience organized around recreational biking and a culminating trip to France.
Learning experiences emphasized include: group leadership skills, culture and history of France, trip planning and safety management, personal growth, and engagement in multidisciplinary activities to promote participation and fun.
This course and coresponding trip expose students to Cuba’s sport system and enhance their awareness of Cuba’s emphasis on physical health and wellness.
There is also the opportunity for young sports scholars and administrators to learn about another sport system, culture, and government approach to organizing sport and physical activity.
