Course content

Over the previous 20 years there has been a gradual acceptance and involvement in psychology within sport at all levels. The application of psychology with sports performers and coaches has been rapid and continues to develop.

Recognising this, the professional bodies of both sport science and psychology (the British Association of Sport and Exercise Sciences and the British Psychology Society) have developed professional routes to recognition within the field.

The School of Sport, Health and Applied Science has five specialised laboratories, in addition to a £8 million sports centre.

This Applied Sport Psychology degree has been designed to enable students to attain professional recognition beyond the programme and to help those wishing to develop a career in sport psychology or aiming to enhance their understanding of the field.

The programme has a discipline-focussed curriculum, looking closely at developing knowledge and applied skills that are critical to practitioners.

Motor skills are an integral element of the programme, allowing students to enhance their ability to work closely with both performers and coaches.

The focus on sport and elite sporting performance at St Mary's makes the University an ideal environment for students.
