New Zealand: Fitness, Sport and Health Promotion in Australasia

In this course, students will tour New Zealand to explore the interplay between sport, fitness, health, and culture in Australasian society. Students will visit Auckland University of Technology, where they will take part in lectures and discussions on the topics of sports science, sport and culture, and nutrition. We will also explore fitness and performance programs for children and the elderly. The tour of New Zealand will consist of an intensive applied academic curriculum and experiential learning that will lead into a research paper to be submitted at the end of the course.
