Master in Sport Sciences

The Master in Sports Science was introduced because students need in-depth knowledge in a wide range of disciplines in order to understand the future challenges in sport and well-being. These include, in particular, movement (biomechanics, learning behaviour and motor control) and training sciences, neuropsychology (perception and control of movement) and sports pedagogy. The integration of the study programme in the Medical Section of the Faculty of Science and Medicine and the cooperation between the University of Fribourg and the Magglingen School of Sport (EHSM) offer students particularly advantageous teaching and research conditions in the field of movement and sports sciences.
