CPASS faculty members Drs. Jack Watson and Damien Clement accompanied 10 students on a trip to Halmstad University, a worldwide leader in sport and exercise psychology, in Sweden March 23-30.

While there, students experienced a multitude of educational growth and experiences that relate to their studies at WVU. By traveling to Sweden, they had the opportunity to learn how many aspects of sport psychology, sport management and athletic coaching differ in countries beyond the U.S.

“The students were exposed to a good deal of academic content but probably what’s as important or even more important is the cultural component the students will got,” said Watson, chair of CPASS’ department of Sport Sciences and a professor in sport and exercise psychology.

Traveling to a new destination to learn more about international sport cultures was the chance of a lifetime for many of these students.
