  • M.A. International Sport Development and Politics

The M.A. International Sport Development and Politics aims at a comprehensive understanding of structures, actors and conflicts in sport and physical activity. It offers an international focus on sport, including transnational and comparative dimensions.  In order to obtain a profound knowledge and understanding of sport in its political, social, cultural and economic framework, the Master program combines sport sciences with humanities, social sciences and economics. The program is highly research oriented and fosters problem-solving capacities as well as methods for understanding and analysing sport.
