Welcome to the pages of the Institute of Sports Science and the Sports Centre of Augsburg University!

At about 1,100 students, we are currently among the largest sports science institutions in Bavaria.

In sport pedagogy our main fields of research are physical education (PE), healthy lifestyles and comparative children and youth sports from an intercultural perspective. In the area of movement science, motor learning is the main focus of our research.

We cover all important areas of sports science in our teaching. In addition, we offer our students a wide variety of different sports as part of their teacher education in PE didactics.

Beside the physical education teacher education program (PETE) for primary and secondary school teachers, we offer additional qualifications in outdoor and adventure education.
