About this course
Sport science is a discipline in which work with and for people is the central concern. Central research topics focus on the different sectors of sport in society, school sport, amateur/leisure-time sport, competitive/professional sport, sport and health, etc. School sport, for example, encompasses physical education and specific training, effects of sporting activity on health, institutional parameters, conditions for physical instruction in groups. The amateur or leisure-time sport sector, by contrast, focuses on the pleasure involved in sporting activity, health preservation and performance enhancement, conditions for organised sport, the dynamics and stability of sport-related motives, and changing value systems.
Graduates from the Sport Science B.Sc. programme will be in possession of an initial degree enabling them to carry on and take the M.Sc. course in the same subject. Depending on their inclinations, they can then either qualify as a sports teacher at higher German secondary schools or branch out into other sectors of sport science. These can be scientific, educational, supervisory, organisational or administrative in nature, providing career opportunities with clubs, associations and other institutions/enterprises dedicated to sport, sport science and health promotion, and also extending to (sport-related) business and the media.
