Masters Degree in Sport in Europe

Best Master Degrees in Sport in Europe 2017

Sport

Master-level studies involve specialized study in a field of research or an area of professional practice. Earning a master’s degree demonstrates a higher level of mastery of the subject. Earning a master’s degree can take anywhere from a year to three or four years. Before you can graduate, you usually must write and defend a thesis, a long paper that is the culmination of your specialized research.

The academic study of sport typically focuses on the physicality or strategy and business of sports, thus preparing students to manage sports organizations, coach teams or either teach or guide physical training in schools or for athletes.

Europe is, by convention, one of the world's seven continents. Comprising the western most point of Eurasia, Europe is usually divided from Asia by the watershed divides of the Ural and Caucasus Mountains, the Ural River, the Caspian and Black Seas, and the waterways connecting the Black and Aegean Seas.
