DEPARTMENT OF SPORTS SCIENCE

Overview:
Pushing boundaries. Breaking records. Training in extreme environments. On this BSc (Hons) Sport and Exercise Science degree, you’ll examine performance, explore athletes’ limits, and understand how physical exercise benefits health.

This course is endorsed by the British Association of Sport and Exercise Science (BASES). You’ll study a combination of theory, research and laboratory techniques so you can understand and apply the scientific principles that help humans perform at their best.

But it’s not just about elite athletes. You’ll help develop tools everyone can use to improve their lives. You’ll become a passionate advocate for the important role sport science plays in today’s society.

You can gain qualifications in first aid and national coaching, so you can step into careers in industry, professional sport, health and education.

What you’ll experience
On this course you’ll:
Be taught by expert staff with industry-relevant accreditations who are actively engaged in research projects that inform the future of sport and exercise science
Put what you learn into practice using our ties to local sports and healthcare providers
Be able to get specialist qualifications that match your career aspirations in areas such as first aid, coaching and gym instruction
Boost your transferable skills such as teamwork, decision making, communication and time management

Objectives:

  1. The teachers will prepare the sports education lesson for all academic stages, with a knowledge of the physical, educational, social, psychological, health and sporting aspects, teaching methods, motor learning and sports training.
  2. To promote the development of sports by participating in sports organisations’ management, administration, arbitration, guidance and education, and to contribute to the leadership of the sports movement through the graduation of the scientific Quality athletic staffs.
  3. To contribute to the dissemination of sports culture through academic curricula, scientific conferences, seminars and sports workshops.
  4. Contribute to the service of society through education for the sports project for all and to clarify the concepts of sports practice and its positive effects in public health.
  5. Preparation of scientific staff qualified to work in the fields of scientific research, sports training, arbitration, sports management, therapeutic sports, teaching methods and techniques, motor learning, measurement, evaluation, motor analysis and psychological and social guidance for the development of the fields of sports sciences.
  6. Proposing solutions to address sports problems through scientific research for graduate students and teaching staff.
  7. Training students to conduct scientific studies through graduation research for completed grades.
