What role does sport - and specifically soccer - play in a society? Given their deep sporting history and current success on the world stage, London (Great Britain) and Seville (Spain) provide rich and unique opportunities to investigate how sport and society intersect as well as how globalization impacts each. The program will critically examine sport and sporting culture in both countries.

Carleton's Sport and Globalization program immerses students in the soccer cultures of London and Seville. Program participants attend professional matches, meeting coaches and players and touring museums. Additionally, students experience two excursions outside of London and Seville and a service-learning project at a local school in Seville.

Coursework includes: Global Athletics, Globalization and Development, and an Introductory Coaching Practicum.
Period: Winter term, even years.
3 credits.
Program advisor: Professor Lawrence Welch
