This course encourages you to think differently about sport. It introduces you to contemporary issues such as violence, inequality, obesity and mental health and asks questions about the role of sport in addressing these. If you are passionate about sport, believe it has the power to have a positive impact on society and want to be involved in delivering that, this is the course is for you. You enhance your career prospects in the sports industry by completing a six week work placement in year two. This gives you the chance to gain experience in the area of sport you are most interested in. Previous students have secured placements as equality audit officer at Sheffield United FC, Press Association journalist, cricket coach in South Africa, project officer for Football Unites, Racism Divides; community coach at Sheffield United FC, Sheffield Wednesday FC and Wigan Athletic FC; and disability sports officer for West Yorkshire Sport. You also get real-world views of sporting issues with guest lectures from industry practitioners at organisations such as FURD (Football Unites, Racism Divides), Street Games, Rotherham Community Sports Trust, FC United and regional sports journalists.
