This new degree combines the techniques of sports management and coaching with the principles of business and management.
The field of sports management and coaching is changing rapidly. All sporting bodies require management and coaching staff to have an excellent understanding of their chosen sport, as well as strong business, organisational and administrative skills.
This four year degree has three key content areas delivered in each year of the course:
- Coaching Pedagogy
- Business and Management of Sport
- Sports Science.
Classes are delivered in a range of settings including pitch, classroom and gym.
This course is open to students from any sporting background who are passionate about playing and/or coaching their sport. It will also be of interest to someone who would like a career in the business and administration of sport. The course prepares you for the workplace with work placement in semester 2 of Year 3. This is further enhanced by engagement with commercial and not for profit sporting bodies in planning events and examining the strategic direction of these organisations. This gives the student experience of organisations which they may be employed by in the future.
