D. Pedro E. Alcaraz
Director of the Master's in High Perfomance Sport: Strength and Conditioning
This Master’s degree is the first in Spain to be recognized by the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA). The curriculum has especially been designed to impart not only theoretical and practical applications in this specific field, but also the methodological foundations necessary for students’ independent research, enabling them to assess the most controversial lines in Sports Science. Our teaching faculty is uniquely comprised of UCAM professors as well as national and international experts from the high performance sports sector.
Students will receive a deeper understanding of the different areas of sports performance and conditioning and acquire the necessary training for proper performance in their professional and/or research careers. The constant evolution and growing interest in physical activity and sports science makes this area of multidisciplinary expertise a highly demanded subject of professional interest. Together with the official title of the Master’s, which allows students to directly access a PhD program, students can also acquire certifications from the prestigious NSCA organization in the areas of Personal Trainer and Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist.
