Course summary

Do you want to understand how thoughts, emotions and physiological responses can affect athletic performance?Immerse yourself in an exciting and ever-expanding topic of research and practice when you choose to study Sport Psychology. We will teach you key concepts and theories specific to sport psychology, and give you a comprehensive grounding in the core elements of mainstream psychology.This approach will enable you to learn to consider how key areas of psychology apply to all levels of sport, from grassroots football to Olympic competition.The first year of the course introduces you to the core domains of psychology including social, cognitive and developmental psychology, along with research methods. You will also get an introduction to key topics and theories relating to working with individual athletes.You will develop your independent research skills in the second year, considering the application of sport psychology services to team environments. This builds upon the knowledge and understanding gained within year one, with the core strands of psychological study progressing further through a range of specified modules.You will then apply the skills and knowledge you have developed in your final year by working directly with an athlete. This provides an invaluable opportunity to focus on an area of study which you have particularly enjoyed throughout the course, and to lead a research study from initial conceptualisation to completion.Over the three years, you will also get plenty of hands-on experience through the professional work placements and volunteering opportunities included within your degree.**Professional placements**Student placements are generally in school-based sports roles and professional sports organisations. Recent placement employers have included Badminton England, Leeds Rhinos, Sevilla FC (Spain), Rotherham United, the RAF and a wide range of primary and secondary schools.**Career opportunities**Your degree will prepare you for careers across a range of sporting sectors, but you will also develop transferable employability skills which can be applied to a variety of non-sporting organisations and sectors. Recent graduates are working at organisations ranging from St Helens RFC and the NHS, to businesses and marketing companies.
