Republic Act 9500 mandates the University of the Philippines to “undertake and support comprehensive sports programs that promote physical education, uphold excellence and encourage competitive participation in sports activities . . . [and] cultivate pride, self-discipline and teamwork,” especially among the youth.
The UP Mindanao Department of Human Kinetics plans to offer a Bachelor of Sports Science and an Associate of Arts in Sports Studies to start in Academic Year 2021 – 2022.
The Bachelor of Sports Science is a four-year program that requires passing the UP College Admission Test or UPCAT. The Associate in Arts Sports Studies or AASS is a two-year certificate program that does not require passing the UPCAT. Graduates of AASS can already be employed or they can continue to the Bachelor of Sports Science (BSS) as third-year students. Graduates of the AASS or BSS can pursue professional careers in sports and related areas.
With the construction of the Davao City-UP Sports Complex within its campus, UP Mindanao is in a position to provide support for the development of sports in Mindanao. A college of human kinetics will arise in the university in the near future.
Be part of this milestone in Mindanao Sports as we promulgate the Department of Human Kinetics' vision!
