Sports & Culture in France

Montpellier is one of France’s fastest growing cities and an emerging cultural and educational center. Within easy reach of both mountains and the Mediterranean, and home to 100,000 university students, Montpellier is a young, vibrant city with a centuries-old history of intellectual advances and social tolerance. The program combines a morning course on sports philosophy, psychology, and cultural dimensions of professional sports with afternoon activities that maximize the active outdoor life of Montpellier. Students from a variety of fields of study, including sports management, kinesiology, sociology, and philosophy, will find this program of interest. The Learning Abroad Center’s Study Abroad Scholarship provides awards for Non-University of Minnesota undergraduate students going on eligible Learning Abroad Center credit-bearing programs.
