Minor Sport and Exercise Sciences

(Autumn and Spring, 22 EC)

Sport and physical exercise are activities that are at the heart of modern-day society. With obesity and other sedentary lifestyle-related illnesses quickly becoming the nr.1 preventable death cause in many western countries, governments stimulate their inhabitants to participate in sports and become more physically active. At the same time, elite athletes enjoy the attention of millions as they engage in international competitions and see their achievements broadcasted around the globe. In this interdisciplinary 22 EC minor program you will get an introduction into key disciplines in the study of human behaviour in sport and exercise settings. For example, how do central and local governments stimulate sports participation? How do elite athletes deal with the pressure to perform well? What happens in the human body while exercising? And, how are complex movements coordinated in the brain? In a series of interconnected courses the minor program “Sport and Exercise Sciences” will provide answers to these questions (and many others) and introduce you to the theory and research that is behind them. In addition, this Minor offers students the opportunity to conduct a critical review of the literature relevant to the field of Sport and Exercise Sciences.
