Course content

The psychology of sport is an ever expanding area that looks to establish a way of enhancing athlete, player and other high performing groups outcomes. This is done through an evidence based approach informed by research to allow practitioners to meet those aims.

Our MSc puts you at the forefront of this process and immerses you into sport psychology in a supportive and challenging way. You begin by examining theory and research within sport psychology and then move onto looking at ways of applying that theory as a researcher and potential practitioner.

You finish your degree with a period in the work place assisting relevant groups with performance enhancement and researching a topic that will hopefully give you the chance to contribute to the body of literature within sport psychology to inform future practices.
