The University of Jeddah has announced plans to introduce a Physical Education and Sports Sciences major for female students at the beginning of next academic year.

The university said students would be able to obtain a bachelor’s degree or a diploma in the field. The degree is eight semesters long, each semester with 15 weeks. The curriculum adheres to the teachings of Islam.

The university aims to produce graduates who are qualified academically and vocationally to meet the requirements of the job market in both the private and public sectors.

The curriculum encompasses academic knowledge, vocational experience and the necessary field exposure, the university said, adding that it has signed agreements with companies from the private and public sectors in this regard.

The university aims to achieve the objectives of Saudi Vision 2030 and empower its students to enter the job market with confidence.

The curriculum prepares the students to work for national and regional sport clubs, Olympics committees and public and private sports organizations, the university said.

The action plan for the new degree has three stages. The first stage will serve the short-term goals of the program and will include preparatory courses in physical and health education.

The preparatory program will last two years. The second phase is to enable students of the Bachelor’s of Education program to specialize in sports sciences and physical education.

The third phase serves the long-term goals of the program. It includes a bachelor’s degree in sports sciences and physical education in which the students can concentrate on one of three options: physical and health education, health and fitness training, and physical and entertainment activities management.
