Course Description: This excursion through both the North Island (or Te Ika-a-Maui) and the South Island (or Te Waipounamu) of New Zealand focuses on communication and sport. Along with engaging in lectures, discussions, and interviews, we will attend events and will also visit museums, media companies, training locations, and club headquarters. These undertakings will provide an in-depth framework on the sport ethnography of the country, as well as athletic leadership styles and techniques that are in use and provide structure for sport in New Zealand.
