You will develop a chosen specialism as well as an understanding of how this fits in with other core disciplines in the football and wider sports industry. The special features of the football and sports industry are also identified in each business studies module, exploring the core fundamentals of the football and sports sector.
In the second year, the study time is divided between the football and/or sports business pathway and your chosen specialism.
The third year includes a football or sports business research project (dissertation). You will graduate with the satisfaction of having researched a pressing issue in the football and sports industry through having had the opportunity to discuss your work decisions and recommendations with those in the football and sports business grappling with the very same question(s).
Sports people have long known the benefits of what an understanding of psychology can bring to their performance. Athletes learn to motivate themselves in ways that they believe will improve performance, replacing self-doubt with positive thoughts about what they need to do in order to succeed.
The ability to understand cognitive behaviour is also a key component of being a successful leader and manager. Others use visualisation, bringing to mind the sights, sounds and feelings of a successful performance in order to be better prepared for the real situation and plan their reactions to the many different things that might happen during a competition.
This degree combines contemporary and traditional areas of research and theory in sport psychology. The traditional psychology component of the award consists of all the core areas of psychology (e.g. developmental, cognitive, psychophysiology, individual differences, research methods, social, historical and conceptual issues), along with the principles and skills of management within the football and sport industries, where you will have the opportunity to develop your psychological analysis skills on and off the pitch. This will be enhanced by our Complementary CurriculumTM where you will meet the best-in-class practitioners in the sport industries via our professional partner network, providing you with the opportunities to practice your knowledge and skills throughout your degree.
