The Global Influence of Sport and Recreation is an upcoming 3-Credit study abroad opportunity that takes place in Australia over the winter break between Fall 2017 and Spring 2018. SBC-UW Faculty Advisor, Dr. Kristina Navarro, is helping coordinate the program through UW-Whitewater, but strongly encourages UW-Madison students to apply because all three credits are transferable back to UW-Madison.
Students will develop an enhanced understanding and appreciation for international sport and recreation. Students will be introduced to and apply concepts of international sport marketing, branding, sponsorship, fundraising, and grass roots program development via an international experience in Australia. This course seeks to broaden students’ perspectives with respect to the global influence of sport and recreation on culture.
The course is designed to complement classroom learning for the Department of Health, Physical Education, Recreation and coaching (HPERC) as well as those interested in sports and recreation. This course seeks to broaden students’ perspectives via an international experience paired with classroom instruction.
For any further information regarding the study abroad trip or any other questions members may have for Dr. Navarro, please feel free contact her via email.
