Sport-related studies

Undergraduate courses starting in 2018

The study of sport and physical activity explores their impact upon modern society and how the body works and responds to exercise during sport.

Modern sport is a field that continues to evolve from an academic, coaching, teaching and performance perspective.

The study of sport incorporates many other academic studies. This includes physiology, psychology, anatomy, engineering, chemistry, politics, management, education, sociology and cultural studies.
