INCLUSION OF THE SAILING, AS A SUBJECT, WITHIN THE NEW CURRICULUM OF THE SCIENCE DEGREE IN PHYSICAL ACTIVITY AND SPORT

 

ABSTRACT

 

The arrival of the university degree in Science Degree in Physical Activity and Sport (Grado) and the modification of the Curriculum have prompted questions about what subjects should disappear, should be maintained or should be included in the Curriculum. Sailing as a subject has been present in six of the universities that offered the bachelor's degree in Physical Activity (Licenciatura) and, with the new university degree and the new degrees that have appeared in the recent years, there are ten universities that include, at least, one subject in sailing nowadays. The majority of the subjects share topics with other sports and as they are offered few credits, the teaching load is quite limited. Despite the existence of many faculties with great access to sailing facilities, only a few of them decide to include sailing in their Curriculum.
