Goa Phys-Ed college to issue degrees in football

Speaking at the Goa Don Bosco Salesian Society’s B P Ed course passing out ceremony at Don Bosco auditorium, education minister Luisinho Faleiro, said Don Bosco's physical education college "will be a harbinger of medals at the state, national and international levels, for the graduates will certainly work with dedication and honesty to mould the youngsters into fine sportspersons.”

It is reported that the college intends introducing a three-year Bachelor in Physical Education-Football Studies programme leading to a graduation degree in the future. The course will be examined by the Asian Football Confederation and FIFA under the Vision Asia programme and will also be linked with the University of Porto (Portugal). A diploma in club and association management (distance learning) on the lines of the course conducted by Australian Sports Commission and a Masters in Physical Education (two years) are also in the pipeline.
