BACHELOR OF SCIENCE (SPORT SCIENCE)

Overviews

     The program has been opened since 2010 and is a 4-year-full-time study. The first year of the study, students study basic sciences and social sciences related to sports science. The second year, students study basic subjects in sports science; for example, Anatomy, Physiology, and Biomechanics. Furthermore, selective subjects related to sports are proposed to students. The third and fourth year, students gain knowledge and skill in several sports; for example ball sports, racket sports, aquatic sports, and combat sports. Besides, students have sport field work at sport center across Thailand. Furthermore, students have experience in mini-dissertation.
