  • “Working out” to strengthen sports sciences

    A degree programme in physical education, a sports diagnostic therapy centre, as well as a fitness centre – these are some of the most important professional plans in the fields of sports at the University of Debrecen.
     
    In a few weeks, the University of Debrecen will submit its application for the accreditation of a degree programme in physical education. The capacities will be 60 full-time and 30 correspondence students in the primary school, as well as 30 full-time and 20 correspondence students  60 full-time and 30 correspondence students in the secondary school teacher training programme. László Balogh, director of the Sports Science Coordination Institute, expects that the guide on the available degree programmes to be published at the end of the year will already indicate that the University of Debrecen offers the physical education degree programme from 2017.
     
    “Our educational portfolio would be complete from undergraduate to doctoral level from the autumn of 2017. In addition to the proposed undivided physical education degree programme, the already existing sports organizer programme of the Faculty of Economics will be expanded, and will be offered next year with the name sports and recreational organizer. The sports economist and recreation master’s programme, will be based on these undergraduate studies, and several doctoral schools will also offer topics related to sports sciences. We recently founded the ‘Nyirkos István’ Sports Sciences Specialized College, which is the second largest of its kind in the country,” said László Balogh.

    In the Sports Science Coordination Institute, a strong background of teaching and research staff is already in place, ensuring the conditions of high-quality work, the director added. The organizational development process of the institute, established in 2015, has been completed, and as a university-based academic institution, in addition to the services it provides, it mostly functions as an educational unit. The activities of the staff working here consists of, in an equal proportion, the teaching of physical education classes, teaching and research. It is an outstanding result that seven of them have qualifications and academic degrees in the field of sports science, and two of them are just before defending their doctoral degrees.
     
     “Some nationally recognized experts have joined the institute over the past several months, and we also have considerable lobbying force. The director of sports of the Hungarian Paralympic Committee, who will head the Hungarian team at the Olympic Games in Rio, comes from the University of Debrecen, as do also the president of the Committee of Sports Sciences at the Hungarian Rectors’ Conference, several members of the Committee of Medical, Health and Sports Sciences of the Hungarian Higher Education Accreditation Committee, as well as one of the vice-presidents of the Hungarian College and University Sports Association,” added the director.
     
    He emphasized that among Hungary’s institutes of sports science, the infrastructural conditions are the best at the University of Debrecen.
     
    “Further opportunities will soon become available when the sports diagnostic lifestyle and therapy centre opens in the building of Nagyerdei Stadium mid-summer. The 1,200-square-metre facility itself has been completed with all building engineering elements already in place, and we are currently in the stage when the sports diagnostic and rehabilitation equipment are being delivered. In the complex, which is unique in Hungary, will be equipped for sports health services, physiological measurements under physical stress, 3-and-4-dimensional movement analyses, rehabilitation and sports psychological surveys, as well as development trainings, but we already have plans for the addition of a climate room where we can conduct measurements and research with controllable temperature, light and humidity conditions,” Balogh explained.

    “In the light of the above I believe that the University of Debrecen will have a very good chance of winning the titles of ‘Healthy University’ and ‘Sporty University’, now being created, and these developments may also contribute to the stadium to be qualified as a ‘Healthy Stadium’. Behind all this we find the commitment of the leadership of the university, as well as the exemplary joining of the forces of the institute and the city in the field of sports,” said László Balogh, highlighting the need for cooperation necessary for achieving the objectives.
