The course in brief


The course is designed to meet the needs of three-year graduates interested in pursuing their professional activities in the specifically sports field. It is characterized by a multidisciplinary training course that covers the most relevant topics in sports such as analysis of athletic gesture, biological, biomechanical, medical and psycho-sociological aspects of sports performance, and organization and management in sports.

Learning by doing

The course includes a wide range of practical-application activities in the field and in the laboratory, coordinated by experts in the field and elite athletes, carried out in university settings and through internships at qualified sports clubs and centers.

Professional outlets

  • Physical and athletic trainer and coach
  • Sports observer
  • Sports event organizer
  • Management of sports, recreation and fitness groups
  • Access to research roles in academia

What you will learn

sports physiology

The role of the neuromuscular system in optimizing sports performance

biomechanics of sporting gesture

Did you know that.

Most of our students find job opportunities in the sports industry already during their studies


More and more exercise science graduates from other universities are enrolling in this course


If you are a competitive athlete and you are selected by the Unige Program for Champions, you will be helped to better balance your athletic and college commitments


General objectives

During the course the following are acquired:

  • knowledge related to optimizing the physiological and technical performance of the athlete
  • knowledge and skills aimed at achieving the best competitive performance through advanced training techniques
  • knowledge about organizing, coordinating, leading, and managing sporting events.

The objectives are achieved by

  • seminar-style lectures and meetings with industry experts and elite athletes
  • case studies
  • theoretical and practical field demonstrations and exercises using advanced performance analysis tools
  • compilation of individual literature reviews and writing of original papers on the disciplines and techniques studied
  • stage at qualified sports clubs and centers for different sports disciplines
  • realization of an experimental thesis on a topic related to the curriculum of studies.


I want to offer students from our Bachelor of Science in Exercise, Sport and Health Sciences or from other universities a solid guide that will accompany them on a specialized course of study in preparation for concrete professional outlets.
