The organisation of the programme

1. First semester of the programme in Sports and Health

The first semester is common for all students and consists of a series of common modules. After the first semester, the programme consists of both common subjects and subjects from the chosen line of study.

Through choice of line of study, choice of elective subjects and/or Master's degree programme, you have the opportunity to create your own unique profile. You can also make use of the programme's great opportunities to spend time studying abroad. 

The year is divided into four periods (quarters) with practical and theoretical instruction within each module. Each quarter consists of eight weeks of instruction and a week of testing. 

2. Second semester (specialisation)

In the second semester of the Bachelor's degree programme, you start specialisation within one of the three lines of study:

  • Sports, Innovation and Entrepreneurship
The "Movement and Teaching" line of study

If you choose "Movement and Teaching", you will be able to work within teaching in upper secondary school and in other youth programmes, at colleges and similar educational institutions after finishing your Master's degree.

You can also work with organising or being involved in courses related to movement and teaching e.g. in folk high schools.

Finally, you will be able to work with initiating and organising activities connected to e.g. sports clubs or various forms of active holidays.

The "Physical Activity, Exercise and Health" line of study

If you choose "Physical Activity, Exercise and Health", you will be able to work with exercise and health and promoting health throughout the course of life from childhood, youth and working life to old age after finishing your Master's degree.
