Sport, Health and Exercise Sciences (Sport Psychology)
This course runs in parallel with our BPS-accredited course and focuses on the application of psychology in the sport and exercise domain. The course is aimed at students with a background in Sport Sciences who wish to specialise in Sport and Exercise Psychology, potentially pursuing a career either in research or as a Sport Scientist accredited by the British Association of Sport and Exercise Sciences (BASES). The aims of the course are to provide students with a coherent programme of study, in preparation for training to become accredited through BASES, to extend knowledge and understanding in the field of Sport and Exercise Psychology, to provide students with a range of learning experiences designed to enhance critical analysis and independence of thought and to provide a grounding in research methods and data analysis in preparation for higher research-related degrees (e.g., PhD).
The normal entry requirement is at least a UK upper 2nd Class (2.1) Honours degree or equivalent internationally recognised qualification in Sport Sciences, Psychology or a related discipline. This includes graduates who have completed a joint course with Sport Sciences or Psychology as one of their subjects as well as single honours Sports Sciences or Psychology graduates. Applicants will be required to attend a telephone interview.
Core modules include: Research and application in the psychology of sports performance; social processes in exercise and sport; psychological skills for practitioners; sport organisation, politics and the law; research methods and data analysis; research dissertation. Optional modules include: Individual differences in sport and exercise; professional development; performance lifestyle.
Assessment procedures include: Essays; case studies; oral presentations; poster presentations; laboratory report writing; computer-based tests. Formal written examinations constitute part of the assessment in some modules. In addition, you will need to submit, and pass, a research dissertation.
