Schools/Departments

The College of Sport Science was established in 1969 as the Department of Physical Education and developed independently to address academic interests in sports, movement, and health related issues. In 1991, the program changed its name to the College of Sport Science to accommodate rapidly changing research and educational needs in the area.
 
The College of Sport Science has the advantage of nationally recognized faculty and well-equipped research laboratories with tutorial assistance for faculty and students. Also, we provide excellent research opportunities for graduate and undergraduate students and chances to work with intercollegiate athletic teams, as well as community high school athletes. Furthermore, we have an excellent record of career placement for students upon graduation.
 
Our dynamic programs provide the students with a scientific perspective of sports, movement, exercise, and health. Graduates from our school have gone on to serve as sports leaders, physical education teachers, and leading sports scientists. The College of Sports Science provides programs at bachelor, master, Ph.D and combined master/ Ph.D level.

Department in Detail
Objective of Education (Undergraduate)
Our department recognizes the needs of sport science, which are provided by our nation and society, as follows:
  - Increase in the importance of sport activity and sport diplomacy, which strengthen the national competitiveness in the era
     of globalization
  - Increasing significance of sport activity, which can act as mediator contributing to improvement of our nation’s health
     and welfare as well as cultural welfare.
  - Increased need of specialized programs that allows for fostering the professional leaders in sport science and
     sport industry due to the increased value of sport in the aspect of social, cultural, and economical values.
 
(1) Academic Aspects
  - Enable students as sport scientists to build the basic fundamentals in sport science by liberal education that
     allows students to have cultural background in “humanity, justice, virtue, and knowledge” as well as
     “countenance, eloquence, literary art, and judgement”.
  - Improve the ability of students to create the novel values of sport science in the digital era through balance
     between traditional physical education and contemporary sport science.
  - Allows the students to have professional ability to do research and provide the solution to the various problems
     of sport science in the area of Health Fitness Promotion, Sport Managements and Industry, Sport Guidance, and
     so forth, through creative mind and challenging spirit.
 
(2) Social/National Aspects
  - Foster the talented students in the state-of-art in new technology such as personalized exercise treatment that
     is rooted in the knowledge frameworks in sport medicine, sport physiology, exercise prescription, training, and
     sport nutrition, as the personalized exercise treatment has emerged along with personalized preventive
     medicine in the 21st century.
  - Nurture the professional leaders who can lead and contribute to sport management and industry, which has
     been under rapid development and growth since the value of sport has been increasingly recognized in these
     days
  - Bring up students to be professional sport scientists who can make contribution to the development of sport
     science, which is one of disciplines in applied science, in our nation and society.

 

Objective of Education (Graduate)
The graduate school of sport science is aimed towards sufficing the national/social needs of sport science and linking to the specialized area of undergraduate educations by focusing our graduate program based on two distinctive areas such as; Natural Science (which sport physiology, exercise prescription, sport medicine, sport nutrition, and biomechanics belong to) and Humanity and Social Science (to which sport management and marketing, sport sociology, and sport psychology belong). Our graduate school is purposed to foster the professional sport scientists and researchers based on the aforementioned specialized programs that allow student to have world-class competitiveness in academia. The detailed objectives of our graduate school are summarized as follows.
 
Objectives in Natural Science Area
  - Increase the academic capability of students, who can creatively think and research in sport science based on the
     knowledge of sport physiology, exercise prescription, sport medicine, sport nutrition, biomechanics, and sport
     measurements.
  - Foster students to be leaders who can actively contribute to our nation and society through pursuing the
     academic development by research activity.
  - Create the practical knowledge framework based on creative mind and ethics.
  - Produce the new valued knowledge that is necessary for academic theory, information-oriented society, and high
     technology digital society.
 
Objectives in Humanity and Social Science Area
  - Increase the academic capability of students, who can creatively think and research in sport science based on the
     knowledge of sport management and marketing, sport sociology, sport psychology, and sport measurements.
  - Foster students to be leaders who can actively contribute to our nation and society through pursuing the
     academic development by research activity.
  - Create the practical knowledge framework based on creative mind and ethics.
  - Produce the new valued knowledge that is necessary for academic theory, information-oriented society, and high
     technology digital society.
