You will develop an in-depth understanding of psychology and will adopt a critical approach to its application within sport and exercise settings.

Through your core modules, you will evaluate psychological theories and examine issues such as self-determination, psychological resilience and the effects of exercise on mood.

Using a systematic, evidence-informed and ethical approach to your work, you will also analyse biological, cultural and environmental factors that can influence sport performance and physical activity.
