PROGRAMME DESCRIPTION
The programme reflects the mission of the Department and is based on the assumption that physical activity is a health-related behaviour that influences the health and well being of individuals. It is from the perspective that post-graduate students can study physical activity (including sports) using a biomechanical, psychological, sociological, pedagogical or physiological approach. Consequently, all of the research conducted in the Department is focused on physical activity in terms of its contribution to related fields of sports medicine, health and exercise.

PROGRAMME REQUIREMENTS
The Ph.D. Programme in Education is research-oriented. A study normally combines seminars with guided independent research in an individually designed course of study under the guidance of supervisor and two or three other advisors. S/he may be required to enroll in formal courses of lectures within the Graduate Division of Education and in other divisions of the University as deemed necessary.
