Psychology seeks to understand human thoughts, emotions and behaviour though scientific study such as observations, interviews, experiments and questionnaires. A degree in Psychology (Sport and Exercise) gives you the chance to study an inherently fascinating and useful subject, within the specific contexts of sport and exercise, while offering you many opportunities for future development and employment. The applied nature of our course provides insight into the practical application of psychological knowledge in the athletic and physical domain from early on in your academic journey. All core modules are designed to complement and balance one another. Aspects of employability are embedded within our course from start to finish, helping you to build a broad range of academic, personal and career skills, relevant to sport, exercise and physical activity. In this course, you will meet a dedicated team of research-active staff who are passionate about teaching. In relation to the Sport and Exercise Sciences more broadly, we are the number one research institution in Kent (REF 2014). The course has been designed to deliver an excellent study experience, with a high level of linkage between modules enhancing the coherence of your learning about psychology, sport and exercise. For example, in your first year, as you study child observation in our Social and Developing Self module you will also cover observational techniques in our Research in Psychology 1 module. Similarly, the theoretical aspects of topics presented in our Psychology of Sport, Exercise and Skill Acquisition module are applied to real sporting or exercise situations and further examined in the Contemporary Themes in Sport and Exercise Psychology module.
