MAYMESTER: SPORT, SOCIETY, AND THE INTERNATIONAL OLYMPIC MOVEMENT

 

Held in Copenhagen, Denmark - this course builds on excursions to Danish Olympic and National Sport Organizations to illustrate the ideals behind the International Olympic Movement. The first half of the course will focus on sport law, national sport policy, and how international perspectives differ from those in the U.S.A. The second half will focus on the psychology of sport, specifically youth sport and ways in which youth experiences support and often undermine the Olympic ideals for sport. We will also explore the distinct culture of the city through tours by bike and by boat. Copenhagen is the capital of Denmark and home to many Danish national sport organizations, providing ample opportunity for building international connections. Lonely Planet voted it the #1 city to visit in 2019, serving as hub - with easy access to the rest of Europe.
