Course description

The M.Sc. programme zeroes in on pressing issues in international elite-level sports. It delves into training methods, meaningful performance diagnostics, and the crucial roles of sport medicine and sport psychology. Students explore the structures within international elite sports, talent identification, and development programmes. They also learn about effective anti-doping strategies. The curriculum covers performance physiology, injury prevention, and sports nutrition. Students get hands-on experience with elite training and diagnostic programmes, learning to plan high-level training sessions independently. Topics like stress management, endurance training, performance improvement, and anti-doping measures are also part of the programme. Graduates find opportunities in professional and high-performance sports globally. They can work in universities, national or international sport associations, federations, and professional sports clubs. Saarbrücken offers an ideal setting for this comprehensive Master's programme, thanks to its close ties with the Saarland/Rhineland-Palatinate Olympic Training Base, the Saarland Sports Federation, and relevant departments at Saarland University's Sports Science Institute.
