WGI Departments

In the past, basic topics of research and knowledge transfer of the WGI focused on school-based physical education, school sport and organized children and youth sport activities including Olympic education inside and outside schools. In 2017 when the WGI moved from Essen University to the University of Münster its constitution and structure of the institute changed. According the new constitution the WGI is structured into four distinct departments related to the competency of the department heads. Each department is headed by one Vice-President of the WGI.

The four departments address former specialty areas of the WGI studies in more detail, with more resources (personnel) but also focusing on an extended range of topics. The departments of the WGI are:

  • Center of Competence for Physical Education, Children and Youth Sport Studies
  • Center of Competence for Olympic Studies in History, Pedagogy and Education
  • Center of Competence for Health Enhanced Physical Activities for Children and Adolescents
  • Center of Competence for Elite Sport

The focus areas of the four departments complement each other in terms of trans-disciplinary work and thematic overlapping, e.g. elite sport and Olympic topics or physical education and health enhanced physical activities.
