Course summary

Psychology is increasingly used by elite athletes in pursuit of the marginal gains that will propel them over the winning line. However, winning isn’t everything, so research also focuses on how psychology can promote engagement and motivation in non-elite physical activity. This degree, accredited by the British Psychological Society, is an innovative collaboration between the departments of Psychology and Sport and Physical Activity. It explores the science of mind and behaviour, equipping you with an understanding of the principles of psychology, including cognitive, developmental, physiological and social psychology. You will explore how psychological science explains performance and engagement in sport and exercise and discover how this can be used to help develop athletes and promote physical activity. You will study what motivates athletes and exercisers, how to support and develop elite sport performers, and the influence of exercise on psychological wellbeing.
