The key attainment target of the Master of Physical Education and Movement Sciences study programme is for students to be duly capable of using scientific research in the area of movement and sports activities in a duly professional manner for the benefit of the care and attendance of moving humans of all ages and in various movement and sports-related settings as well as for students to be able to perform research into the functioning and guidance of moving humans.
Bachelors are also prepared to conduct research into the functioning of and the offering of care and attendance on moving humans. The professionalisation and in-depth exploration of these two attainment targets is made to take place as part of the Master of Physical Education and Movement Sciences training programme.
As part of the Master of Physical Education and Sports Sciences study programme, the research and movement cognitive competences are explored in greater depth and coupled with occupational competences. Which is why the training model is made up of a truncus communis, which includes the thesis and a wide selection of elective courses. This enables students to choose between four socially relevant graduation variants: "Sports training", "Physical Activity, Fitness and Health", "Sports management", "Movement education and Adapted Movement Education". The scientific and professional focus within each of these professional fields of competence is put in place setting out from a holistic vision of the study programme and the chosen professional career in a duly integrated manner. In the Master training programme, the bridge between theory and practice, the foundations of which were laid during the Bachelor years, reveals itself even more poignantly as here, students are required to take a 120 hour work placement in either one of the four options outlined above. The idea behind the work placement is to encourage students to act with a due sense of reflection by engaging in the confrontation between theory and research.
