Subject Matter

Sports and physical exercise are becoming increasingly important in both a leisure and achievement-oriented society. People are active in clubs, fitness studios, sports halls, outdoors, and in many other places. Activities range from the usual sports (ball sports, athletics, gymnastics, swimming, etc.) to trend, adventure and risk sports (skiing, climbing, hang-gliding, wind surfing, mountain biking, inline-skating, etc.). Sport and exercise are also of great importance in the areas of health care and aftercare. Sports and exercise therapy can offer valuable therapeutic help to patients. As a result, the role and the meaning of sports teaching have changed. Thus, in addition to school sports, sports science focuses increasingly on leisure and competitive sports, in programs of prevention and rehabilitation as well as in sports marketing and sports management. Because the theory and practice of sports science are closely coordinated, sports scientists can find employment in many professional fields.
