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.
