Dept. ofSports & Health

The twenty-first century needs healthcare professionals trained in sports and health science.

Introduction

“Nothing is more essential in maintaining health and well-being to the age of one hundred than sports and exercise.” The dawn of a true era of well-being will begin when all members of society seek to improve their general health and fitness. We believe that the best way to achieve this is through the concept of ‘a better life with sports’ practiced as a health philosophy on a daily basis. As we approach this new era participation in everyday sports will expand further and personalized health care service roles will become even more important. The Department of Sports & Health Science is committed to cultivating health care specialists and healing life professionals who are dedicated to the general welfare of the public. We achieve this through systematic theory and practical education rather than simply focusing on the development of sports training professionals.
