The bachelor's degree in sports science conveys broad and integrated basic knowledge of the subject. The students acquire a critical understanding of important theories, principles and methods with a special profile in the field of "Sport, Exercise and Education". The aim of the sport science degree is to train experts in the field of sport, exercise and education who can develop, plan, implement, assess and evaluate sport and exercise offers in different educational settings.

The later occupational field of the graduates lies in organizations that provide exercise-related educational offers or use sport and exercise as a medium for conveying educational content (e.g. clubs, associations, Olympic training centers, health insurance companies, research institutions, companies, schools, day-care centers, etc. ).

The course opens up the possibility of participating in research and development projects at an early stage. In addition, the overarching goal of the course is to acquire qualified access to the master’s course in sports science.

What distinguishes the study of sports science at the HU?

The Humboldt University is home to the only institute for sports science in the state of Berlin. The capital institute is located in the heart of Berlin, in a modernized historical building with very well-equipped laboratories and a newly built sports research hall. It is one of the largest institutes in Germany and the university lecturers are networked in a variety of ways outside the university. The institute enables competitive athletes in different sports to have the best possible framework conditions to successfully tackle their dual career of competitive sports training and sports science education. In the bachelor's degree, basic knowledge and skills in all sports science sub-disciplines as well as practical fields are imparted (the focus is not on doing your own sports; appropriate skills are required). Numerous international collaborations of the institute mean that stays abroad at various universities are possible through the Erasmus program. The course offers the opportunity to select differentiated individual focus areas in the sports science fields of culture, health and performance in the advanced study.
