Sport, exercise and health

Undergraduate courses starting in 2019

The study of modern sport explores the impact of sport, exercise and health on modern society and how the body works and responds to physical activity.

You could explore sport, exercise and health, coaching, management, leisure and physical activity and how the body works. You don’t need to be good at sport to take a sports degree.

Your study of sport could incorporate many other academic fields. These include physiology, psychology, anatomy, biology, biochemistry, engineering, chemistry, politics, management, education, sociology and cultural studies. Courses can cover anything from exercise physiology to the relationship between sport and the media.
