Read the Official Description

Due to the high demand of society and little training by professionals around the health and prescription of physical exercise in people with specific requirements, the idea of a Master in Physical Activity, Health and Pathologies is born to prepare professionals who are able to work properly with people with different pathologies, such as cancer, diabetes, obesity, etc.

The present Master aims to train people who want to work in health centers or training aimed at this type of population. For this we will use a training model based on research and acquisition of knowledge and specific skills that qualify it to successfully perform individualized training in areas of fitness, wellness, sports and health and rehabilitation centers. This Master's Degree in Physical Activity, Health and Pathologies will provide students with an eminently practical education for which there is a specialized faculty of recognition and national and international prestige that will bring a realistic and innovative vision of the professional sector.

What we offer?

To facilitate the teaching-learning process of students, several aspects have been considered. The Master will be taught according to the methodology based on ECTS credits following the criterion of the student's active participation in the learning process.

The sessions are not considered as a mere transmission of knowledge from the teacher to the students, but as learning by the student through scenarios that allow their direct interaction with the problem analyzed, all within a simulated context that tries to reproduce the reality of the professional. This methodological intention not only supposes to promote the acquisition of knowledge but also the development of competences and favorable attitudes for the solution of the problems that arise in these social contexts.

During the academic year, interspersed, theoretical and practical sessions will be taught with the idea of strengthening the content applied to students and that they acquire real techniques and tools for implementation in the patient.

Internships and master's thesis

All the students participating in the Master's Degree in Physical Activity, Health and Pathologies have the option of doing some external internships (voluntary-non-evaluable). To this end, the center itself has collaborating institutions and companies with which to carry out these practices or students can search for them and sign an agreement with the CEU San Pablo Andalucía Foundation.

The internships last 100 hours, which can be done during the academic year 2019-2020.
