Program Overview

Program Description:
Since 1971, the FSU London Program has offered students from across the nation a fine liberal arts curriculum in an historic seat of Western government, commerce, and literature. The London Study Centre is located in a row of 17th century buildings registered on the British National Heritage list. Students live and study in our state-of-the art educational facility in the heart of the Bloomsbury district, one block from the British Museum and minutes from the theatre district, the National Gallery and many more London landmarks. There are many programs based at our London Study Centre, ranging from our broad curriculum programs that are attractive to students in any major to curriculum-focused programs in areas like literature, international affairs, communication, media, art, engineering and theatre.

For students at all levels pursuing a degree in Sport Management or a related field, study abroad adds a significant dimension to one’s career preparation. With courses covering topics such as international sport marketing and business, governance, socio-cultural issues, and facility and event management, students achieve an invaluable global perspective. Classroom discussions are augmented by presentations from sport industry professionals in Great Britain, as well as by exclusive field trips. The program is based in London where students visit offices of governing bodies, sports organizations, and attend in-season sporting events. Field trips to Wimbledon and the Open Championships are highlights of this popular program. There are also opportunities to tour notable sport facilities such as Emirates Stadium, Wembley Stadium, and Lord’s (the Home of Cricket). The year 2013 will be very special for the program. With London just having hosted the Olympic Games, the courses will include an additional focus on various aspects of the Games including financing, infrastructure development, event management, and sponsorship experience.
