    General Presentation

    The Faculty of Physical Education and Sport was founded in 1964, functioning within the old Pedagogical Institute of 3 years, changed later into the Higher Education Institute and then in the Engineering Institute of Oradea. Its aim was to train physical education teachers for the primary and secondary school from our country, but also coaches (trainers) in some sportive disciplines or specialists in medical physical culture.

At the same time with the establishment of the Technical University of Oradea in 1990, changing its name after a few years in University of Oradea, the activity of physical education and sport profile is resumed, for this time within the long-term university education, working as part of the Faculty of Letters and Science and then of the Faculty of Letters and Social-Humanistic Sciences. Since 1999, according to a governmental decision, the physical education and sport profile has been developing within the Faculty of Physical Education and Sport. The main aim of the faculty is to train physical education teachers for all degrees of the education, sport managers and kinetotherapeuts.
