The agony of choice
If you want to study sports, you have the choice between different subjects. Degree programs in sports management, sports science or sports are suitable for teaching. For most of these programs, successful completion of a sports aptitude test is the prerequisite to get started apply to be able to.
Perhaps you have already seen one of the numerous reports, for example, about the most demanding test at the German Sports College in Cologne. As a student is going to be a sports student in many courses, the existence of the admission test for the universities is a sign that you can also compete with the many sports you have to learn and to do.
The study contents of the sports studies vary depending on the subject area of the course of study. For this reason, I will list the contents of the course as follows. The lectures listed here are, of course, only examples which can vary from institution to institution.
Sports Management / Sports Economics
This course of studies is the only course offered for enrollment at all universities. This is understandable, since the study focuses on the theoretical and practice-oriented mediation of the economic study contents.
In their lectures, students will learn about topics such as business economics and economics, (sports) marketing, legal foundations, management of sports clubs, sports rights and licensing, history of sport.
The sports sciences combine different fields of science, such as movement science, sports education, sports medicine and sports psychology. From these areas the study contents in subjects such as, for example,
Anatomy, movement and training science, various sports (kick-off games, team games, etc), educational aspects in the sport of performance, history of sport.
Sports on Lehramt
First of all you have to decide as a student interest for which secondary level you want to prepare for your studies (Gymnasium / Gesamtschule, Realschule or Grund- / Hauptschule).
In decision-making, the former sports instructors from the school age can help or the study advice of the universities. You must also choose a second supplementary subject (eg German or mathematics).
In the study one then learns contents such as sports education, game theory / development gymnastics, gymnastics, ball games, etc, sports psychological aspects of the school sports science.
Prospects after graduation
Of course, depending on the chosen course of study, the potential areas of activity after graduation will vary. While graduates of a teaching degree course almost without exception start a career as a teacher, sports scientists have career prospects in training, in sports research or in the development department of sports companies.
Graduates of a sports management study, on the other hand, can be used in the administrative sector, for example, by sports clubs or associations, sports players and sports companies.
