Course summary

About the course

The course is delivered at University Centre Myerscough and awarded by the University of Central Lancashire. This ground-breaking course provides a unique opportunity to gain a postgraduate qualification for sportsturf managers and consultants who wish to engage with other professionals in the landscape, sports, planning and greenspace industries.

The management of surfaces for sport is a significant global industry utilising diverse areas of land within both urbanised and rural landscapes. Managers of sportsturf surfaces have a responsibility to manage these facilities for both the sport concerned and also be cognisant of resource and environmental concerns. Sportsturf surfaces offer wide ranging economic, social and environmental opportunities when managed appropriately but face many challenges in the 21st century if they are to survive in a highly competitive social and recreational market place. Competing forms of leisure, economic factors and other constraints continue to impact on sport globally. Sportsturf managers have to be mindful of these factors, which directly impact on the resources needed to sustain surfaces and meet customer expectations.

This part-time MSc Sustainable Sportsturf Management, awarded from the University of Central Lancashire, is an innovative course which encompasses a multidisciplinary approach to contemporary sportsturf management. The course aims to develop students’ critical and analytical thinking to enable implementation of effective and efficient management practices. The MSc will encourage debate and critical evaluation within an environment that develops holistic understanding of international issues.
