Overview

The program will teach you the key concepts and theories of Sport Psychology, as well as giving you a comprehensive grounding in all core areas of psychology. The Sport Psychology (Single Honours) program at Leeds Trinity University will enable you to learn to consider how key areas of psychology apply to all levels of sport, from grassroots football to Olympic competition.

To make sure you graduate with the knowledge you need, we structure your three years into the three key building blocks of sport psychology.

In your first year, you’ll get an introduction to key topics and theories relating to working with individual athletes. You’ll develop your independent research skills in the second year, considering the application of sport psychology services to team environments. You’ll then apply the skills and knowledge you’ve developed in your final year by working directly with an athlete.

Over the three years, you’ll also get plenty of hands-on experience through the professional work placements included with your degree.

Graduate Opportunities 

​You'll be prepared for careers in a wide range of sport sectors, but you'll also develop transferable employability skills which can be applied to a variety of non-sporting organizations and sectors. Showcasing the transferability of Sport Psychology, our recent graduates are working at organizations ranging from St Helens RFC and the NHS to business and marketing companies. You'll also be well-prepared for postgraduate study in any area of psychology.

Accreditation

The program is accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS).
