Modern sports are under constant development, with factors that promote performance, leadership development, injury prevention and new training methods playing a key role. This development has increased the need for research-supported expertise. This program gives you the opportunity to work effectively within elite sport and/or progress onto further postgraduate studies in sports science.

The program is delivered part-time at an advanced level and focuses on performance analysis, sports physiology, elite training and coaching/leadership in the field of sports science. The program gives students the opportunity to develop and use their practical and theoretical knowledge to better handle complex situations in sport, including at the elite level. The program incorporates a number of key components which relate to the complex operations of national and international elite organizations, as well as scientific theory and methods and an independent research project. The theoretical components will be delivered online, but with complimentary on-campus meetings/seminars in Östersund. The program is run in collaboration between the Health Science Department (Sports Science program) and the Swedish Winter Sports Research Centre (SWRC). Furthermore, some aspects of the program may take place in various facilities, such as the SWRC, Östersund´s National Ski Stadium and Åre National Arena.
