Human movement is essential to develop resilience and prevent diseases like diabetes and cardiovascular disease. On the other end, knowledge on human movement is essential to enhance athletic performance. In both cases a high level of multi-disciplinary expertise is required to be effective in this field. This is reflected in the four master tracks rehabilitation, biophysics of sport, sport psychology and high performance.
The mission of the one year Master’s program ‘Human Movement Sciences: Sport, Exercise and Health’ is to offer students a critical, sensitive and contextualized perspective on human movement. This means that students are taught to formulate and solve both theoretical and practical research questions.
We assume that the academic development of our students flourishes best within an informal setting with ample contact between student and easily approachable staff, internally described as an ‘open door atmosphere’. Despite the increasing student numbers, efforts are being made to keep up a high level of student‐staff interaction, particularly in the master research project.
The start date of this programme is September 1st.
