Course summary

This course allows you to analyse the role which sport plays in society, and consider ways in which sporting opportunities are developed and managed. It fosters the academic and professional skills needed to find employment in the sport and leisure industry. Social science modules (e.g. sociology of sport, politics of sport, sports policy & planning) alongside other modules (e.g. physical education, sports coaching, sports development and management, performance analysis and psychology of sport & exercise) combine to offer you a rich and diverse coverage of the academic study of sport. The University regularly ‘refreshes’ courses to make sure they are as up-to-date as possible. The University calls this process 'academic revalidation’. This course will be ‘refreshed’ and changes may be put in place.

Career options

Career Destination Statistics indicate a significant number of sports graduates go on to study the PGCE in Physical Education or other postgraduate qualifications both at the University of Ulster and at other institutions in the UK and abroad. A growing number of graduates gain employment in the leisure industry, with a significant proportion of each cohort embarking on careers in areas unrelated to sport. The extensive placement programme allows the course team to remain in touch with the needs of employers. Students completing this degree would be well equipped to undertake a growing number of postgraduate courses in the history, politics or sociology of sport. Opportunities for MPhil/DPhil level studies may be available for those who demonstrate the requisite abilities.
