Study the science behind sport and exercise at Roehampton where you will learn how to optimise athletic performance, prevent injuries, improve well-being, and help athletes with recovery. Sport and Exercise Science is comprised of three areas – the biology and biochemistry of the body (physiology), the physical demands on the body (biomechanics), and the response of the mind (psychology). This Sport and Exercise Sciences degree will help you gain in-depth knowledge of how these three sciences underpin sport and exercise and get you ready for a career in the sports industry. You will learn about the latest sport theory and practice and gain hands-on experience working in lab settings with specialised modern equipment. This sport and exercise sciences degree will give you a strong scientific knowledge basis to be able to address key contemporary issues in the sector such as how to optimise team performance, how to improve the recovery, and mobility of amputees, and how to cope with extreme environmental conditions. Our enthusiastic tutors provide lively interactive ways to learn, ensuring you will have the best possible experience. You will develop a range of key skills, including the ability to analyse and understand scientific data and information. With a sports sciences degree, you’ll be able to apply what you have learned to a successful career in the sports industry or beyond. Recent modules have included ‘Applied Sport and Exercise Science’ which explores performance analysis techniques for both team and individual sports, ‘Psychology of Peak Performance’ where you will discover the psychological theories and skills that apply to the promotion of peak performance including the newest psychological developments, or ‘Biomechanics: Performance & Injury’ which will help you put your theory work into practice using data from scientific measurements to improve athlete performance.
In your first year, you'll be introduced to the three key academic disciplines that make up sport sciences – physiology, psychology and biomechanics – and you will develop a range of skills for studying sport and exercise. Modules might include: Introduction to Physiology and Fitness Assessment, Biomechanical Analysis of Movement, or Introduction to Sport and Exercise Psychology. In your second year, you'll expand your knowledge of the subject area and spend many hours in the laboratory practically applying your knowledge and skills. Recent examples of modules available include Applied Sport and Exercise Physiology, Psychology of Peak Performance, and Applied Biomechanics. In your final year, you'll have a choice of modules to enable you to tailor your programme to your own specific interests. In addition, there will be an opportunity to carry out an independent research dissertation in an area that interests you. Modules might include: Advanced Topics in Psychology, Biomechanics: Performance and Injury, or Training Programmes.
