Physical exercise and health

Master Degree

Ano Letivo 2024/2025

Course Overview

The Master's Degree in Exercise and Health aims to offer a specialisation in the area of Exercise and Health, to deepen theoretical and practical knowledge of the relationship between exercise, health and healthy lifestyles, as well as to provide an effective response to an increasingly pressing and defined need for specialised training in the assessment and prescription of exercise for different target populations (healthy and those with different pathologies), in the implementation of physical activity programmes, and in the monitoring of these same programmes. The aim of this course is to prepare future exercise professionals, based on the development of skills for autonomous updating of knowledge, as well as permanent critical analysis of their own practices and the practices of those around them. It also provides advanced training in the critical analysis of the descriptive and mechanistic nature of the plausible relationships between exercise and health, as well as advanced training in the influence of behaviours associated with exercise and nutrition.
