This exciting new degree will provide people who are interested in all aspects of sport, play, dance and recreation with an opportunity to extend and develop their knowledge and skills at undergraduate level. The programme is supported by specialist staff, many of whom have worked or researched in community sport settings.
This degree has been developed to meet the changing needs of sport in the community and to provide vocational and academic training in this emerging area. Students completing this programme would be able to formulate policy, research and consult with a range of partners, obtain funding and promote and market community sport initiatives.
In addition, graduates will have a greater awareness of non-traditional sporting opportunities, cultural diversity and equality, sports policy and multi-agency collaboration. They will be equipped to work across the community with diverse populations and ages and they will be very well placed to take advantage of the employment opportunities afforded by the legacy of the 2012 London Olympics.
