Sports Science

We run this programme jointly with the University of Fribourg. The programme’s two specialisations provide for excellent instructional and research conditions.

This degree programme:

  • is intended for individuals who hold a BSc in sports science and wish to specialise in teaching or health and research;
  • examines specific topics in sports science, such as movement and training sciences, sport pedagogy and psychology and biomechanics and sport medicine;
  • enables you to engage critically with research findings and to apply and further develop them in your own area;
  • leads to a university-based master’s degree, which qualifies you to apply to doctorate programmes.
