Program Notes
Please review the CGPS COVID-19 Updates page before applying to a study abroad program.

All applicants must have a valid passport by the program’s application deadline. Your passport’s expiration date must be more than six months after the program ends. If you do not have a current passport, apply through the U.S. State Department. It takes an average of 8-11 weeks (2-3 months) to process a passport.

The University will continue to monitor the ongoing situation with COVID-19 (coronavirus) as we approach the departure date for this program. Please reach out to your program coordinator or faculty director with questions and continue to monitor the UD coronavirus webpage for updates.

If UD decides to cancel a study abroad program, we will communicate directly with affected students.

Traveling and studying abroad during a global pandemic poses new challenges and requires accepting a higher level of uncertainty than in the past. Students who choose to study abroad at this time must be prepared to adapt to the evolving situation and must take responsibility to act in accordance with the rules, regulations, and recommendations of UD, their program leadership, and legal authorities of their home and host country. Due to the rapidly changing and unpredictable global and local response to COVID-19, these rules, regulations and recommendations are subject to change at any time.
Program Description
Study the History of the Olympic Games along with the practice of Health and Physical Activity in modern Europe. The modern Olympics were revived through the efforts of Frenchman Pierre de Coubertin. Paris went on to host the second modern Olympic Games, and will again play host in 2024.

We will start our program in London, where we will visit the Olympic sites from 2012 and see how they have repurposed their Olympic sites. We will explore many of the sites of London including the Churchill War Rooms. After London we will head to Barcelona to see how they repurposed their Olympic facilities from 1992. The Barcelona games were considered the most successful in several ways. All purpose-built venues remain in use today, as do 94 per cent of all permanent venues used. While in Barcelona, we will also challenge ourselves with some popular Spanish physical activities. After six days there, we will to head to Paris. While in Paris we will watch the torch relay, attend some Olympic events, and tour the historic beaches of Normandy. We will also visit the Louvre and the Arc de Triomphe, and climb the Eiffel Tower.

Students will reside in shared hotel, hostel, or dorm rooms, in which breakfast and some other meals will be provided. Lunch and most dinners will generally be on your own.

Whether you’re interested in learning about the modern Olympic Games or challenging yourself in new activities, this Summer Session study is your chance to grow as an individual, learn some interesting world history, and experience the Summer Olympic Games in person.
