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 will 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
