Course summary

Develop your knowledge of biomechanics, physiology and psychology. You will understand how humans function in sport, physical activity and health environments. This degree has three core strands running throughout the course: Biomechanics will explore how humans create and control movement including athletes’ technique Physiology will cover the structure, function, regulation and performance of bodily systems Psychology will examine the role of thoughts, feelings and behaviours in sport and exercise settings Through these core disciplines you'll apply your knowledge to sports performance and exercise participation and understand the relevance of sport and exercise science to current practice. Along with the core study of biomechanics, physiology and psychology, examples of other topics you will cover include: biochemistry motor control nutrition and metabolism research methods sports medicine strength and conditioning In your first year you'll develop your functional anatomy knowledge and link it to basic concepts of biomechanics. You’ll build on your knowledge of human physiology and psychology and their application to sport and exercise. You will develop your skills in research design and statistics. In your second year you'll advance your knowledge of biomechanics and explore interdisciplinary studies in connection with nutrition and psychology of sport. You’ll apply your biomechanics, physiology and psychology knowledge to sport and exercise medicine, and develop practical skills that relate to sport and exercise science data collection and interpretation. In the final BSc year you'll design and carry out a year-long research project and study in-depth issues in sport and exercise science. You’ll also be able to tailor your profile towards a specific discipline and choose an area of interdisciplinary study.
