Sports Science

Lifestyle, living environment and health

Regular physical activity has significant impact on individual health - this is well known! Early positive experiences of physical activity and sport are important for the inclination to be physically active in later life. Children and young people´s exercise habits not only affect their health in the present, but also their future health and well-being.

Sports and health is a broad, interdisciplinary field that focuses on links between lifestyle, living environment and health among other factors.


You can read programme courses and free standing courses in the subject of Sports and health.

In the teacher training programme you can study to become a sports teacher for younger or older pupils. As student teachers, you also have the opportunity to study specialization courses in sport, physical activity and movement.

Our free standing courses cover areas such as outdoor recreation, outdoor education, applied leadership and adapted physical activity.
