Kinesiology is an interdisciplinary field investigating the science of intentional human movement with wide use in research, the sports and fitness industry, medical rehabilitation and other environments. Highly trained experts in the field are also important for the transfer of new knowledge into various professional environments. The doctoral programme in Kinesiology is targeted at highly trained experts and future scientists with broad professional knowledge who are capable of independent and creative research in the field of kinesiology and are also qualified for work in interdisciplinary team groups.

The doctoral programme in Kinesiology is organized by the Faculty of Sports with the cooperation of individual experts from other faculties at the University of Ljubljana. The programme inseparably connects scientific work and course work, prioritising electives over compulsory courses. The students will obtain the necessary theoretical basis and methodological skills in scientific work through the choice of compulsory courses, various elective courses with theoretical and methodological content, and various seminars. The programme also enables students’ mobility, as up to one third of their study requirements can be fulfilled elsewhere.
