Faculty of Physical Education and Sport is one of the seventeen faculties based on the venerable Charles University.

Czech higher physical education dates back to the period before World War I. At the beginning, there were various educational courses at the Faculty of Medicine. Efforts of progressive scientists and pedagogues such as prof. Smotlacha, Borovanský, Jirásek and Weigner led to the Bill of establishing “Tyrš’s State Institute of Physical Education” in 1930. This idea was implemented after the War by forming “Institute for Education of Physical Education at Charles University”.

In 1948 the Institute was incorporated in the Faculty of Education, out of which, independent Higher School of Education was formed in 1953. A new higher school – “Institute of Physical Education and Sport” was founded in 1953 together with “Research Institute of Physical Education”. Both institutions provided education for pedagogical, scientific and managing workers who wanted to pursue their career in the area of physical education and sport science. Within reorganization of higher schools, which took place in 1958, three departments of Higher School of Education were joined to the Institute of Physical Education and Sport. The new formation was joined to Charles University as one of its faculties.

Biomechanics is an interdisciplinary field of science which, based on the knowledge of anatomy and biochemistry, deals with the mechanical structure and mechanical behavior of living systems and their mutual mechanical interactions. A biophysical and engineering methodological approach to task solving is supported there, by a great degree of knowledge of biological nature. Research is carried out at various levels of distinction, ranging from micromechanics (cell level) to living macro-systems (e.g. human biomechanics). Applications of biomechanics can be encountered in a number of areas of science and professional activities.

Biomechanics conceived in this manner can be utilized not only in the field of basic research but also in a wide range of professional activities - e.g. in rehabilitation medicine, ergonomics, forensic and biomedical engineering, sports, etc. The Training Department of Charles University and the Czech Academy of Sciences enables interdisciplinary education in doctoral studies on a wide scale and directed towards the specific application....

The study program is realized within the framework of the kinanthropology field of science. Kinanthropology is a multidisciplinary field of science that deals with the complex effects of intentional and spontaneous physical activity on human personality development in the bio-psycho-social context and in conditions of physical education and sports, physiotherapy, health physical education including their effective management.

The aim of doctoral studies in kinanthropology is the scientific preparation of experts to ensure their ability in regards both to independent research, scientific and pedagogical activities and to practical applications of acquired knowledge and skills in accordance with the needs of the practice. It is an interdisciplinary study program that requires the variability of approach to task solving reflecting the entire thematic spread of this scientific discipline. A system approach is accentuated during the course of study with an emphasis on the specificity of kinanthropology, both in terms of methodology and content. Doctoral studies in the kinanthropology program are highly individualized, based on the type of the dissertation thesis project and also on the field of undergraduate studies. The preparation program is selected to develop the student’s theoretical and methodological readiness in relation to his/her dissertation specialization with the aim of systematic scientific activity in the chosen research problem....
