The Department of Exercise Science and Sport Studies is excited to announce our first Study Abroad program:

Lifestyles of the Mediterranean

SA Greece PlakaThis program will present the traditional Mediterranean lifestyle pattern to students of the modern era, through conducting research, observing traditional practices, and undertaking experiential activities.  Students will have the opportunity to not only study, but to also experience the concept of the Mediterranean lifestyle in Greece, where this traditional lifestyle pattern has been implemented for thousands of years and researched in terms of its effects on health, well-being, and disease.

SA Greece AcropStudents will have the opportunity to explore Athens, the capital of Greece, for the first week of the program, including two 1-day field trips to Marathon and Aegina Island, as well as Peloponnese and Spetses Island for the last 5 days of the program.

Some days will be devoted to theoretical lectures or discussion sessions on the scientific and culture themes of the day, followed by relevant experiential activities and research.  Other days will be devoted entirely to field trips and excursions.
