Program Overview

This College of Humanities program gives you the opportunity to study in locations hosting some of the world’s biggest soccer tournaments each summer with the guidance and support of the University of Arizona. During this five week program (four weeks in the host country), you will get six Gen Ed credits studying the history and significance of soccer around the world, intercultural competence, and the complex and fascinating culture of the host country. This program will change locations each year based on which country is hosting a major professional soccer tournament that summer. For summer 2019, the program is in Paris, France, and overlaps with the Women's World Cup.
