Our Graduate School aims toward the systematic understanding of the three fields that correspond to the three departments in the School of Health and Sports Science, namely “Sports Sciences”, “Social Sports Sciences”, and “Health Sciences.” Through the application of this understanding, we seek to bring them together as a deeper and integrated whole.
Our Master of Science Program, as well as laying a foundation for research in the area of Health and Sports Science through a systematic understanding of its three major constituent fields and through studies based on its understanding, trains graduates who will be equipped with the ability to identify challenges and problem solving skills that will allow them to take on an active role in society.
This field pursues scientific principles that underlie the characteristics, instruction, and various medical problems associated with sports, from the elite level of international competition to everyday pursuits more freely enjoyed by the common athlete.
Social Sports Sciences
This field explores the cultural and economic utility of sport as well as our essential understanding of its social scientific value by focusing on sport-related social phenomena such as the sports industry and sports media.
This field pursues systematic methods for advancing “health promotion” with the intention of shaping healthy lifestyles and comfortable environments for the wider public.
Our Doctoral Program aims to create a holistic science of health and sports through the intensification and organic integration of researches grounded in the three fields listed above. To this end, we assemble doctoral thesis committees composed of examiners from across a broad disciplinary spectrum, and our graduate school strives as a whole to train doctoral candidates of superior quality.
Through our university principles “Jin” (benevolence) and “Fudan-Zenshin” (keep going forward), we as a graduate school conduct high-quality research on sport and health science, and prepare graduate students to be creative and practical thinkers who contribute fully to the development of community health and culture.
Through studies and education on sport science, social science, and health promotion, the mission of our master’s program is to prepare students to apply both scientific and practical knowledge to improving community health and fitness and social development of sport.
Through studies and education on sport and health science, the mission of our doctoral program is to train independent researchers and educators who can conduct creative, high-quality research and apply derived knowledge to advance sport and health science.
