Course summary

Sport Psychology uses the rigour of science to investigate how people perceive the world, structure their thinking, solve problems and interact with others, set against the context of sport and exercise. Our Sport Psychology degree is firmly embedded in both the disciplines of Psychology and Sport & Exercise Science. This approach allows you to study important psychological theory and apply this to a variety of sport and exercise settings. You will take an interdisciplinary approach to the study of Sport Psychology, preparing for work as a practitioner in elite sport, exercise, and broader community health settings. The curriculum contains high level, research informed teaching delivered by skilled lecturers, drawing on their own research and expertise. The degree is designed to deliver a tailored skills-based experience which is underpinned by a foundation in subject knowledge and research skills and experience. You will also learn key transferable skills, enabling you to apply knowledge and undertake your own research, exploring the impact of Sport Psychology across specialist populations and in different contexts. You will be taught in our excellent research facilities, including labs for experiments in cognition and perception, an Eye tracker lab, an EEG lab, an fNIRS lab, observational and transcription labs. You are supported by your lecturers to become an independent learner capable of questioning the world around you, with an emphasis on ethical issues relating to wellbeing, competition and research.
