Program Description

Máster Universitario en Actividad Física y Salud

Real Madrid International School

  • This Master´s degree has undertaken the task of designing specific training programs and improving the quality of life of large sections of the population.
  • Two different itineraries: Professional and Investigator (this one enable for the Pdh)
  • Learning based on practice

GOAL

Based on the biopsychosocial model, it has developed a program which essentially focuses on the three dimensions of health: biological, psychological and social, in order to address the needs of various populations with some type of pathology, or the elderly.

WHO IS FOR?

The Master's Degree is aimed at holders of university degrees in Physical Activity, Psychology or Education, Health Sciences and Physical Education Teaching

Key aspects

The Master's Degree in Physical Exercise and Health is the program which best represents the research of Universidad Europea (the leader in sports science research in Spain 2012) and benefits from the experience of Real Madrid CF. It will help you become a well-rounded professional in the fastest-growing field of employment in sports (with internships closely connected to future job openings), backed by the guarantees of a Master's Degree from the UEM School of Sports Science. And if you want, you can also train as a researcher by taking the Ph.D. in Physical Activity and Sports, certified by ANECA (the Spanish National Agency for Quality Assurance and Accreditation), at Universidad Europea de Madrid.

The concept of health has long been associated with the classic definition of the absence of illness (biomedical model). However, the new concept of health proposed by the World Health Organization (WHO) involves alternative indicators and adopting behaviors which reduce the probability of illness, discomfort a, d suffering (biopsychosocial model).

This new conception gives individuals an active role in their state of health, emphasizing lifestyle and physical exercise among the behavioral habits which most help to improve it.

Also, according to the latest Spanish survey on public health, one out of every six people aged over 15 has a chronic health problem. This fact shows that physical exercise professionals need to specialize in different pathologies in order to achieve all the benefits it can offer, but adapted to each particular individual.

The Master's Degree in Physical Exercise and Health, the first Master's Degree of its kind to be offered in Spain, has undertaken the task of designing specific training programs and improving the quality of life of large sections of the population.

Based on the biopsychosocial model, it has developed a program which essentially focuses on the three dimensions of health: biological, psychological and social, in order to address the needs of various populations with some type of pathology, or the elderly.

For all these purposes, Universidad Europea provides the latest technology, solid experience, a holistic vision, and one of the best faculties in the world.
