The Joint Bachelor of Arts consists of the studies of two different subjects/components.

The component Sports Science focuses on problems and manifestations to do with the topic of sports including its theories, methods, and techniques (e.g. training methods, equipment, kinesiology).

In order to be admitted to the program, prospective students are required to pass a sports aptitude test . In order to pass it, the students are required to complete three individual sports (artistic gymnastics, athletics, swimming) and two out of three elective sports (basketball, soccer, gymnastics & dance, handball, volleyball) successfully.

In the course of the study programme, the students deal with theories, methods, and techniques of sports-scientific topics and work on problems independently.
