Program Description:
logoalicante pier
Study pediatric exercise science in Spain while enjoying local sports, world class art, Spanish tapas, and lots of sunshine. Learn from international leaders in the field of sport science, travel to the Olympic Village in Barcelona, attend cultural events, and live the Spanish lifestyle. TCNJ is partnering with the University of Alicante, located in the center of a major city.

TCNJ students will have the opportunity to interact with leading Spanish pediatric researchers, observe and participate in local sport events, and travel to other cities to experience the people, food, and culture of Spain (Madrid and Barcelona are only a three-hour train ride away). Students from both TCNJ and the University of Alicante will interact as part of group activities, cultural excursions, and social events.

Students will reflect on their experiences in a daily journal that describes their ongoing understanding and appreciation of developmental physiology, cultural trends in youth activity and childhood obesity, and shared experiences with Spanish professors and students. In addition, student-led group discussions will involve topics related to their observations as well as personal insights regarding fitness and lifestyle habits in Spain.

Note: Due to the nature of exercise science, practical sessions will involve moderate to vigorous levels of physical exertion. However, students with a medical condition will not be required to participate in these activities.
