The degree encourages examination of the institutions within which people organise and manage their lives, through investigation of a range of themes. Social institutions such as the family, education and religion are scrutinised for how they shape and construct identities. You will obtain an excellent stepping stone to careers in sport-related fields as well as a range of skills valued by all graduate employers. St Mary’s has a long tradition of excellence in sport-related degrees and the Sport Science programme is endorsed by the British Association of Sport and Exercise Scientists (BASES). The degree also enjoys strong links with the English Institute of Sport (EIS) and UK Athletics, both with a presence on campus.
