The main focus of the Masters and Ph.D. program is the acquisition of research based and occupational skills for professions in the field of exercise, prevention and rehabilitation. The program is divided into clinical applications for patients as well as for recreational and high-performance athletes. Emphasis is put on a theoretical, methodological and experimental academic education.

The scientific curriculum encompasses the effects of physical activity in disease prevention and rehabilitation, with the focus on exercise physiology and physical therapy.
