Bachelor of Science in Sport and Physical Activity


Program Description

The pillars of this approach are based on a systemic teaching of anatomy and physiology, on the simulation of situations of professional practice, on intervention in a real context of internship, on the close relationship developed with reference partner entities and in interaction with other Sports and Health professionals.

A testimony

This Degree is quite differentiadora.Tem teachers with high knowledge and experience in the professional world, and I like to "teach". There is a great connection between theory and practice, helping us to evolve into a professional and personal register. The Tiago Silvestre three years ago is totally different from today, for the better.
