Where will you go?

Experiencing different cultures exposes you to different ways of thinking, communicating and understanding. During your time at UW-Eau Claire in the department of kinesiology, you'll have many opportunities to explore cultures both near and far. Whether it's traveling across oceans or borders, you can see, touch, taste and smell things you never would have expected while earning a kinesiology degree. These experiences are available through research opportunities, awesome internships, engaging classes and more. So prepare for the unexpected and to discover something new about yourself along the way. 

The department of kinesiology offers a unique cultural immersion experience to Japan. View the featurette below for more information.

From Eau Claire to Tokyo
