This cycle of studies aims to provide students with specific and advanced training, at a theoretical/practical level in the area of football training, preparing them for contexts where they develop tasks of supervision and leadership of training/competition processes, observation and game analysis, or training control.

For this purpose, the development of skills in this cycle of studies is harmoniously articulated and integrated into real contexts of professional practice, over two years of training, culminating in the possibility of carrying out a professional internship or dissertation.


This study cycle aims to provide the students with an advanced and specific theoretical-practical formation, in thefootball training area, preparing them for multidisciplinary contexts, where assessment, planning, technical orientationand investigation tasks will be developed in a sequential fashion.
