  Program Description   Faculty Leaders
 CBA 315 Learn about the business of sports while visiting Ireland. Students experience how culture, history, and politics influence the business of sports in Ireland. In addition to  the focus on the business of sports, students will tour the city of Dublin and see the Irish countryside. In  particular, students will learn about popular Irish and European sports, such as Gaelic football, hurling,  rugby, and soccer, watch a rugby match and learn how professional sports teams are managed.  Students will  also study the business of horse racing and breeding racehorses, and attend a day at the races. And of course,  students will discover the different models of golf club ownership and play nine holes on one of the most  famous links courses in western Ireland.

 Global Business Study Tour is a three-credit fall 2019, undergraduate global business elective course. This course can count as a business elective, business of sports minor elective, international business   elective, or free elective.  

COM 330 Documenting Culture Through Travel offers students, through travel and study, a unique opportunity to gain firsthand experience of a foreign culture and to learn how to record and document their experiences using multiple media, including print, audio, video, photography and/or the Web. While traveling, students will be required to attend lecture/discussion sessions, site tours, and other planned activities. This experience will be preceded and/or followed by additional academic work to be conducted on campus. Study topics may include aspects of the historical, social, economic, political and aesthetic cultural components appropriate to the location(s) to be visited. 

Documenting Culture is a three-credit fall 2019, Communications course for students with a Communications major and minor. If a CBA student were to enroll in both CBA 315 and COM 330, they can take this course for a total of 6 credits in which COM 330 can fulfill a global cultural liberal arts elective or free elective.

Students will also earn 3 engaged learning credits.
