The specialisation Health Sports and Prevention focuses on analysing, planning, organising and instructing activities with a preventive character. Working with people is at the heart of the theoretical knowledge taught to our students. The focus is on skills and competences in the areas of sport and sport science. Graduates are qualified educational-instructional and technological-methodical organisers and designers who can competently support and advise private customers and businesses with specialist knowledge in all relevant areas of public health.
Our main focus is on equipping our students with the skills and qualifications to…
- ….provide people who, for a variety of reasons, want to become active in a health-relevant way with competent support and advice. The aim is to enable those people to become physically active in a responsible manner.
- ….think holistically in each process and aspect of practical work and to realise this under consideration of the triad of "movement, nutrition and stress".
- ….be able to move confidently within the specific structures of the healthcare system i.e. to have knowledge of, use and help shape these structures.
The relationship between knowledge transfer and skills development was carefully considered in designing this specialisation. The health coach deals with the most complex object imaginable: people who think and act. In addition, demand is increasing by the growing independence of knowledge acquisition and the increasing application of knowledge in practice.
Work and application fields for health coaches include sports clubs, fitness studios, health centres, hotels and wellness facilities. The integrated vocational training and in-depth study in the area of sports management leading to the qualification as sports specialist open up further career fields in organised and independent sports to our graduates.
