Course description: This GEL course is designed to immerse students in the fields of Exercise Science, Health Professions, and Performing Arts Medicine. Students will stay at the University of Winchester, UK and meet with Exercise Scientists, Sport Performance coaches, Physiotherapists and tour facilities. We will travel to London to tour Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance and meet with Dance Science faculty and tour the graduate research facilities. We will plan to take in some sporting and cultural events and meet with those involved in training for these events. Students will be asked to research and discuss the facilities and professionals we will be visiting to have background knowledge prior to the trip. Upon returning, students will be asked to write a reflection paper on their experiences. We plan to have a busy schedule with a diverse agenda to better immerse students into the multidisciplinary field of Exercise Science.
