Please note that admission to the Master’s Degree programme may also depend on additional requirements.

The job market for Sports Scientists is generally broad and varied. Sports Scientists may find employment in sports-scientific teaching and research or as teachers in the sports sector.

They can also work in the fields of health consultancy and promotion for clinics and rehabilitation centers, health-oriented organisations, or fitness centers. Working for associations or clubs as well as with sports authorities is also an option. Another field of activity can be found in the sports management and marketing area.

Depending on the second component the students choose in their Joint Bachelor of Arts, other career opportunities can be found in schoolbook and textbook editing, in publishing houses (e.g. in editing), in radio, TV and newspaper editorial teams, in PR and advertisement agencies, in libraries and archives, in international organisations, at Goethe Institutes, as well as in the cultural sector (e.g. as dramaturge at theaters). With additional business qualifications, they can find employment in business enterprises (e.g. in marketing and distribution or in human resources).

For this reason it is important to start gaining practical work experience in relevant organisations early in the degree programme. In this way students can promote themselves as competent professionals in practice and make important professional contacts. The likelihood of finding a good position is definitely heightened if the student is flexible when it comes to commuting or even moving abroad. Good English language skills are particularly important when it comes to the international job market.
