Sport & Exercise Psychology

Sport and exercise psychology is one of the fastest developing areas of psychology, with this degree being an innovative collaboration between the Department of Psychology and the Department of Sport and Physical Activity. In addition to studying the science of mind and behaviour, you will explore how psychological science explains behaviours in sport and exercise settings and how we can use this knowledge to help develop athletes and promote physical activity and exercise. You will gain a thorough understanding of the fundamental principles of psychology while studying what motivates athletes and exercisers, how to support and develop elite sport performers and the influence of exercise on psychological wellbeing. Our degree is accredited by the British Psychological Society.
