Programma-opties

  • Sport, Learning and Performance (specialisatie)

    To explore themes related to Physical activity, sports and cognition; Talent identification & development; Perception, action & decision making; Performance analysis & optimization in sports

  • Minor Sport Science (minor)

    The minor sport science offers students a multidisciplinary introduction to contemporary issues in the field of sport science.

    Students with a range of different academic backgrounds will be taught courses by experts from the fields of medical, behavioural, social and economic sciences. Through a series of lectures, tutorials, practical sessions, presentations and assignments, students will gain insight into the knowledge, methods and research used in the field of sport science.

During the first year of the Master's programme in Sport Sciences, you follow specialization course units to gain a better understanding of the development, learning and optimisation of sport skills and sport performance.

Alongside the specialization, the first year includes two compulsory course units (Advanced Statistics and Philosophy of Science and Ethics) and a profiling part. In this part you can select course units that are offered by the Centre of Human Movement Sciences. Alternatively, you can select external course units or carry out an academic assignment, which could involve gaining teaching or applied research experience, doing consultancy work or writing a scientific article for publication. During your studies you are expected to work intensively with students and lecturers in various different ways. The main focus of the second year of the Master's programme is the master graduation project. You can do this internally, externally or abroad. In your research project you demonstrate that you are able to conduct scientific research in a specific field and that you are able to present your findings in a scientific article.

Studeren in het buitenland

  • Studeren in het buitenland is facultatief
  • Voor gemiddeld 20 weken
  • Maximaal 40 EC

The second year of the Master's degree programme, in which the student has to do his/her Master Graduation Project, offers in particular great opportunities to study abroad.

    Innovative training device optimizes Paralympian wheelchair use

    The Center for Human Movement Sciences of the UMCG/UG, together with Lode BV, has developed a new wheelchair ergometer. This is a new technology that enables all wheelchair users, from early on in the rehabilitation process to Paralympic level sports, to train in their own wheelchair and be given feedback.

    The equipment enables the force exerted on each separate wheel to be measured. Detailed measurements can be taken on how the performance is achieved, thus enabling the propulsion method and fitness of the individual to be improved and the wheelchair further optimized. This can help prevent physical strain and generate better performance. The new ergometer is the first in the world of its kind.
