Program Summary & Location
This international immersion program targets undergraduate students majoring/minoring in Kinesiology.
The first week of the program consists of attending the “Tsukuba Summer Institute for Physical Education and Sport” program
organized by the University of Tsukuba (about 1 hour from Tokyo) that brings in a number of international students and professionals from overseas to engage in research collaboration, workshops, and traditional sporting activities. The second week of the trip consists of visiting the Tokyo Metropolitan area including some historical/cultural sites and potentially a training site where elite athletes train in preparation for national and international competitions.
The experience in Tsukuba will bring to light varying cultural differences and awareness as undergraduate and graduate students along with faculty join the summer program from different countries, including India, Australia, Belgium, Brazil, and the United States. Attending students will be sharing spaces with local students as well as international students as they engage in sporting and outdoor activities.
