What is the role of sport in a world facing pressing social challenges? How do we understand the possibilities and challenges of sport as a platform for social change? How do we examine and analyse sport and sport science research to find new perspectives on the role of sports? How can we look critically at the development of sport in relation to social processes such as globalisation, migration and urbanisation?
Sport Science: Sport in Society is a two-year master’s programme that tackles these questions. During the programme, students develop applied skills and a critical knowledge base to work with sport, leisure, and health industries as platforms for social change.
The programme is tailored for those who have undergraduate experience in sports science, physical education, health science and management. By embarking on this programme, you will have the advantage of being schooled in the latest theories, while also being given the opportunity to apply these theories and concepts to real-life projects and challenges through individual assignments and group projects.
Located in the dynamic Öresund Region, the programme is linked to Malmö's urban environment and its position as a multicultural, innovative and sustainable city. Throughout the programme, both Scandinavian and international contexts are used as case studies, and the programme is carried out in close collaboration with industry partners such as local organisations.
The programme strives to offer an international classroom practise and brings together students from different backgrounds. This allows you to deepen your knowledge and gain an overview based on the academic backgrounds and practical experience of other students, which will allow you to work transculturally in your future profession.
The education is closely linked to the sport science research environment at Malmö University, which has a strong research environment and a prominent role in the scholarly debate on sport issues.
After completing your studies, you will have significantly deepened your knowledge and understanding of sport in relation to society's change processes. You will have the competence, knowledge and understanding required to work with sport in relation to sustainable development.
The education is relevant for a wide range of jobs and roles where sport is used in the context of change, ranging from working with elite athletes to sporting federations or public health sectors.
This two-year master’s programme also provides a pathway to PhD studies or industry in research and development.
