Additional areas of course coverage may include the historical development of amateur and professional sports, the structure of sporting organizations, the international governance of sport, the impact of intellectual property on sponsorship and promotion of sporting events, the special problems associated with doping in sports, international sports as a basis for advancing social and political agendas, and the increasing commercialization and globalization of sports.
I would like to say that the study abroad program in Barcelona was one of the most amazing things I have ever done.
