Master’s thesis

By mastering the study programme of physical education and sport, students gain competences ne necessary for quality performance in various activities of their future profession, primarily in teaching of physical education. General competences that students acquire are universal and primarily concern the ability to analyse; synthesise and anticipate the solutions in the teaching process, in relation to material circumstances; master the latest professional methods, as well as the research procedures and processes in physical education and sport. General competences also concern the development of critical thinking and the ability to apply the acquired knowledge in practice. In addition to this, our students are taught to:

  1. Conduct independent research in the field of physical education and sport,
  2. Define significant research topics in the field of physical education and sport,
  3. Creatively apply the acquired knowledge to even the most complex jobs within teaching of physical education,
