Master of Science "Sports, Exercise and Human Performance"
IMPORTANT: All information regarding the Master of Science program are under reserve until the accreditation process is finished.
The study program
The proposed Master of Science ‚Sports, Exercise and Human Performance‘ represents a highly specialized masters degree focussing on research. In particular the study program is characterized by its alignment on scientific methods as well as its strong direction into internationally used standards and the imparting of field-typical ‚soft-skills‘ without implicating any sport specific practices.
The study program aims to enable students to work in research-based occupational areas, and to make decisions in generating knowledge, diagnostics, planning and evaluating independently. The students should achieve profession-specific competences in leadership and communication skills to finally be placed in leading and decisive staff positions.
The masters degree is a graduate program including 120 ECTS-Credit-Points designed for undergraduate students who achieved skills in natural and behavioural sciences including medical aspects of sports and human movement. Elementary methodological knowledge is necessary as well as capabilities in experimental and field research.
Qualifications of this study program
• Competencies in independent research (conception, planning and execution; conduct of research projects on international standards)
• Competencies in implementing scientific results in training and rehabilitation
• Competencies in executing evaluation studies in terms of sports, exercise and human performance
• Competencies in an effective preparation and processing of scientific results for decision-making
Excellent students will be offered a ´fast-track‘-version. This possibility will combine the graduate program and the start of a PhD-graduation, aiming on a scientific occupation and the initiation of a further academic career.
