Master of Science "Sport Science – Movement and Wellbeing"


From a human’s right point of view living for humans goes beyond health without excluding or neglecting it. Whether wellbeing can be achieved without health or wellbeing is even necessary for health is one of the problems to be discussed in this master profile. Furthermore we will teach a variety of methods for achieving wellness related to movement, nutrition and related activities as well as their philosophical backgrounds. The understanding of wellbeing and the methods for achieving this differs with cultural background. Beside the western oriented approaches the Traditional Chinese and Indian ways for achieving wellbeing will be of central focus within this master. More specifically, some time for the studies of Traditional Chinese Medicine and Ayurveda will be spent in China and India at our partner universities.
Another major aim of this master is the study of contemporary scientific methods based on western understanding of science in theory and practice for adequate measurement and diagnosis based on psychophysiological variables. Measuring brain states on the basis of the electro-magnetic and haemodynamic activity of the brain, effects on different heart beat dependent variables, changes of skin resistance, variations in the infrared spectrum or the changes in gas discharge are just a few examples that will be taught for precise diagnosis of changes related to wellness.
