Objective of the study was to analyze the relevant thesis research directions in different branches of science and scientific occupations in the field of physical education and sports.
Methods and structure of the study. The quantitative analysis of the areas of thesis research according to the scientific occupation and branch of science was carried out over the period from 2017 to 2019 in the main research directions in the field of physical education and sports (mass physical education and sports; elite sports and training of sports reserve; physical education and sports management system; training, advanced training and retraining of personnel in the field of physical education and sports), as well as according to the sports classification.
Results of the study and conclusions. The article presents the distribution of theses by the branches of science and scientific occupations. The findings indicate a decline in both the total number of thesis researches and the branches of science and scientific occupations in the field of physical education and sports in recent years. The experts place the highest emphasis on the problems of elite sports and training of sports reserves, where most researches are devoted to sports games training. Such researches make it possible to highlight not only the most relevant avenues of current studies in the field of physical education and sports, but also possible ways to develop sports science in the future.

Keywords: thesis researches, physical culture, sports, branches of science, scientific occupations.
