Kinesiology B.S. featured as Learning Abroad Center's "Major of the Month"

Logo-img.jpgThe kinesiology B.S. program is featured as the University of Minnesota's Learning Abroad Center's "Major of the Month" for April. Details about the kinesiology undergraduate program are being highlighted in Learning Abroad Center monthly publications and media displays.

Assistant professor Stephen Ross, the School of Kinesiology's Director of Undergraduate Programs, is quoted in the monthly newsletter. "Studying and living in a different culture will help you see the world from a different perspective," said Dr. Ross. "Most students return with a different worldview, new perspective on their own communities, and a greater understanding of the true interconnectedness of the globalized society in which we live. Learning abroad not only enhances your awareness of the world and your academic learning, but is also essential to setting yourself apart from the crowd."

Kinesiology undergraduate students often study abroad in Australia, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom. Additionally, a brand new learning abroad course, KIN 5720: Managing Mega Sport Events in China, will give upper-level students an opportunity to tour Olympic venues such as the Beijing National Stadium (Birdcage), Wukesong Indoor Stadium, Olympic GreenTennis Centre, and Beijing National Aquatics Centre.
