Program: Bewegungs- und Sportwissenschaft  / Movement and Sport Science
Degree: Bachelor of Arts (B.A.)

The Bewegungs- und Sportwissenschaft / Movement and Sport Science bachelor program combines fundamental competencies from theoretical fields of sports science with practical kinesiological approaches in the societal action fields of kinesiology, sports and physicality.

Theoretical and research-oriented in-depth studies and career-oriented explorations and reflections follow, which merge into study profiles according to students' own interests. Modules from other programs of the university and exchange programs with foreign universities ensure the interdisciplinary and international alignment of the program.

The major topics offered are "Inclusion and all-day education," "Cultural education" and "Medicine, training and health."
An additional study focus can also be undertaken with the final bachelor's thesis.
