About

Study psychology and its application to sport and exercise with the Sport and Exercise Psychology (Hons) programme of the Plymouth Marjon University.

Overview

Course Summary

Our British Psychological Society (BPS) accredited Sport and Exercise Psychology degree covers an exciting and continually expanding field of study as there is an increasing need and awareness of sport and exercise psychology support services in relation to performance, public health and well-being. The work of sport and exercise psychologists can be wide ranging, from working with high level athletes to help them reach their potential, to supporting the general population to maintain their exercise routines.

The Sport and Exercise Psychology (Hons) programme of the Plymouth Marjon University is designed to provide a scientific understanding of the human mind, brain, behaviour, and experience, and of the complex interactions between these, as applied to competitive and recreational sport and exercise. It seeks to develop students’ knowledge and understanding of mainstream psychology and to then consider it in a theoretical or applied sport and/ or exercise environment. This Sport and Exercise Psychology degree is the first step in the required qualifications essential to become a registered sport and exercise psychologist. You'll study modules from both psychology and sport courses which enables you to blend your understanding of both disciplines.

What might you become?

Our Sport and Exercise Psychology degree is accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS) to provide graduates with chartered membership of the Society, the necessary first step in a career as a psychologist in the UK. The next step after completion of this BSc degree for a career as a chartered Sport and Exercise Psychologist is to complete a BPS accredited MSc Sport and Exercise Psychology programme. Training in Sport and Exercise Psychology is acquired through postgraduate education and supervised practice; you are not qualified to practice as a Sport and Exercise psychologist without further training.

This degree prepare students for a career in the field of sport and exercise psychology and supports progression into professional psychology careers paths including postgraduate training, educational psychology, clinical psychology, occupational psychology, health psychology, teaching (further training required) and research. It also provides excellent preparation for other related careers in sport science support, the sport, fitness and health industries, and health promotion.
