Presentation

Graduates of this 120-credit master will be able to teach motor and psychomotor skills in the broad field of physical and athletic activities, and to adjust a training regimen depending on the participants' ages. Their responsibilities will also cover educating their students on healthy living.

To this end, the programme provides essential skills in a variety of fields: teaching, technical, tactical, but also nutritional and psychological (stress management, mental preparation, etc.), while also maintaining a tight relationship between physiological and biomechanical concepts and their practical applications.

A large part of the programme is dedicated to learning how to teach groups.

Lecture classes, practical work, seminars, work placements/internships.
