  • Objectives
    The MA in Athletic Performance in Applied Sport Development aims to provide the opportunity for practitioners in sport development and related professions to engage in a critical and intellectually rigorous investigation of athletic performance in the process of sport development from policy formulation through strategic planning to practical implementation in order to contribute to personal and career development. As athletic performance and sport development continues to progress up the political agenda and increased resources are targeted at the process, the skills necessary for managing that process are changing. They have moved beyond the implementation of speci?c development initiatives and increasingly require the capacity to adopt a strategic perspective that takes account of the work of a range of agencies and organisations. The development of an MA in Athletic Performance with Applied Sport Development is linked to a desire to expand the portfolio of programmes run by UCP Marjon, in order to meet these industry demands and to capitalise on the expertise in teaching and research. With its excellent range of facilities, its locality and its links with the local and regional communities, the UCP Marjon is well positioned to become the premier centre for sports development in South West England.
