Objectives and competences

The properties of complex systems cannot be understood from knowledge of their isolated constituents. However, the reductionist perspective is dominant in the understanding of sports phenomena and systemic perspectives still do not apply dynamic principles to understand change processes. Science based on complex systems generates a solid foundation for integrating knowledge through unifying principles and concepts. This master's degree aims to provide this training and thus contribute to developing professional skills considered essential.
