Program Description:
Guilford College
Sports Studies: International Model of Sport

This course provides a first-hand, culturally-diverse experience that will inform students of the
rapidly globalized nature of the sports industry, while also giving them an opportunity to examine
both the similarities and differences between the European Model of Sport and our own domestic
approach. Through game day opportunities, interviews/lectures with sport leaders, tours of
culturally-significant sites, and traditional didactic study, students will gain a new perspective of the
sports industry, while also having an opportunity to build a network of global contacts.
Representatives of top international sport organizations will address a wide range of subjects/issues
throughout the trip. Topics will include the structure and characteristics of European sports,
marketing and management in European sports, sports law, sports medicine/performance, and 
professional sporting around the world.
