Greeting remarks from the Dean
On behalf of the Department for Sport and Health Sciences, I welcome you whole-heartedly!
We are experts in Sport and Health! We offer a broad, interdisciplinary, scientific portfolio of teaching and research in these two fields of science. The spectrum extends from the holistic support of top athletes, such as the National Ski Team, for instance, or in diagnosing the performance of professional soccer players from the record champions of FC Bayern Munich, and up to the prevention and rehabilitation in the context of civilization illnesses over the entire lifetime.
One of our strengths is the interdisciplinarity. At the present, 13 professors teach and carry out research on the faculty in close cooperation with the other institutes of the excellent TUM university, such as the Klinikum rechts der Isar (Rechts der Isar Hospital), the TUM School of Life Sciences Weihenstephan or the TUM School of Education. Our versatility extends from biomechanics to training science, from sport psychology to sport didactics and from preventative pediatrics to diversified sociology or also to sport and health management.
For the training of students we offer a total of twelve courses of study for bachelor, master and teacher qualification. Included here are the two Bachelor's courses of study in "Sport sciences" and "Health sciences" (Bachelor of Science) as well as the Master's courses of studies in "Diagnostics and training" and in "Movement and health" (Master of Science). In addition, we also train athletic trainers for all forms of schooling. With "TUM Sport and Health for Life" and the Master's course in "Traditional Chinese Medicine", we offer diverse training and further-education possibilities.
I invite you cordially to seek further information on the pages of our Homepage. Would you like to find details on our courses of study? Do you need more detailed information on the faculty? Would you like to learn how to apply for one of our courses of study? Are you looking for a contact partner for further questions? Our team gladly awaits personal contact from you.
Be SPORTY, remain HEALTHY!
Prof. Dr. Ansgar Schwirtz - Dean
