Course summary

Our philosophy of sport promotes social justice and values participation over consumerism and is reflected in everything we do as we put the performer before the performance. Your learning will focus on keeping athletes healthy and developing excellence not elitism.This course is centred around physiology, biomechanics and psychology. Sport Science modules investigate how the body adapts to training and practice, movement analysis and athlete motivation. You will learn how to improve human performance at the highest levels in elite sport but also how to improve the health of individuals and communities through exercise. This includes examining the impact physical activity can have on preventing heart disease, obesity, dementia and depression.Research is a big part of what we do. Our passionate, professional staff are outstanding researchers who will keep you up-to-date with the debates and issues facing sport and exercise science today. We ask tough questions about the value of sport, the benefits of perfectionism, prevalence of bullying and gambling, and how money impacts the personal lives of professional sportspeople. You will engage with these debates, respond to the latest research and carry out your own research.Our Nestlé Rowntree Park Sports Campus is a home for our research community, for sports teams from the University and local community and for your learning. The site includes 3G football and rugby pitches, tennis courts, netball courts and grass pitches. Inside is a sports barn, a strength and conditioning suite and social and teaching spaces. Our new human performance labs will also be completed this year.Taught through a mixture of lectures, practical fieldwork and lab-based learning, this course will prepare you for a career either in sport or in a wide range of science-based industries. Chances to gain real-world industry experience with our partners across the region will also enhance your employability after graduation.This programme is offered as a three year Undergraduate Degree (BSc) and also as a four-year Postgraduate Degree (MSci) which allows students to graduate with a Masters level qualification. Students are able to change between the two versions of the programme once they are enrolled.This course is also available with a Foundation Year (UCAS code C7C6)
