Programmes of Study
Below you find an overview on the studies of Sport, Business & Law as well as the Teacher Education Programmes at the University of Bayreuth:
- Concept of Sport, Business & Law ProrammesHide
The unique and successful concept of the study programme Sport, Business & Law has been a benchmark for studies in the field of sports management ever since it was founded in 1985.
The basis of these studies focusing on sport and economy derives from the academic fields of sport, management, business administration and law. The uniqueness of the programme is based upon its interdisciplinarity, internationality, its traditions and ability to innovate as well as its strong spirit of networking and cooperation.
- Bachelor's Programme of Sport, Business & LawHide
Sport is a relevant factor for society and economy and its importance has been growing constantly in the course of time. In many fields of business, highly-qualified university graduates are needed. Thus, skills in business administration and sport science are just as important as experiences in project management, a sense of legal problems and solutions. To fulfill this job profile, the University of Bayreuth has developed the study programme B.Sc. Sport, Business & Law.
In the course of six semesters, our students gain a sound education in business administration, sport science and law with special references to sport management. Thus, students develop the ability of thoroughly analyzing, interpreting and solving problems. Furthermore, a multisided training in different sports adds to the interdisciplinary study profile. The teaching language is German and English.
In view of the international orientation of the field of sport management, the B.Sc. Sport, Business & Law also contains courses of foreign languages. This enables our students to actively participate in dialogues with international partners.
Interdisciplinary study offers and practically oriented ways of teaching transmit fundamental job-oriented skills. Moreover, an obligatory internship contributes to the practical aspect of the studies.

- Teacher Education Programmes in SportHide
This page provides details on the various ways to complete a teacher education programme at the University of Bayreuth’s Department of Sport Science. We would be happy to provide one-on-one advising if you still have questions after reading through this information.
Since 2008, institutions in Bavaria have had the possibility to define their own profiles in the scope of the Teacher Education Examination Regulations (LPO I). In Bayreuth, we have used this chance to focus on your teaching skills in sport. You will complete a relatively extensive range of sport discipline seminars in Bayreuth. These seminars integrate theory and practice in a form that is demanding from the perspectives of both didactics and methodology. We also value “real-life” classroom situations in which you are involved in sport instruction with children and young adults. Cooperation with local schools and our special course formats make this possible. The language of the courses is German.

Gaining an impression of the opportunities which emerge after the academic studies should not only be an issue after the degree is obtained. Students should make valuable experiences and form important networks already during the course of their studies through internships at different companies.
The early acquisition of practical experiences is strongly supported by the University of Bayreuth. Our departments offer workshops and lectures held by representatives of successful companies on a regular basis and thus create a link to the professional job market. Moreover, the Office for Internships organizes recruiting-events like the job fair “Masters-Börse” or the “Career Days”.
The Office for Internships serves as an academic link between students and companies. It supports especially students of the bachelor and master studies in programmes with elements of business administration or economics.
