The Master’s Degree in Sports Training and Nutrition is designed to provide students with specialized knowledge of the most state-of-the-art training methods, the latest trends in sports nutrition, and natural ergogenic aids for improving sports performance.

GOAL

The program is based on an eminently practical work methodology. In order to achieve an optimal assimilation of knowledge we combine teamwork, attendance at seminars, and individual work at the campus’s facilities which are equipped with cutting-edge technology, including physiological laboratories with equipment for carrying out functional assessment tests and training tests, and a training lab equipped for strength measurement.

Everything that is learned is also reinforced by internships at some of the most important sports enterprises and clubs. The aim of this course is for students to receive a comprehensive training which will prepare them for:

  • Programming short, medium and long-term training plans in various contexts.
  • Handling devices for analyzing human movements and monitoring training.
  • Preparing natural nutritional and supplemental diets, combined with timing intake.
  • Carry out performance and body composition assessments.
  • Carrying out scientific research and development.
