Program Information

School:Cardiff Metropolitan University

Field of Study:Sports Studies
Description:Participation in sport and physical activity has a plethora of associated benefits ranging from improved health to developing elite performers but the extent to which these benefits are realised is dependent upon the process of sport development. In short, sport development is about providing opportunities and pathways for people to take part and fulfil their potential in sport. Pursuing a career in this industry provides graduates with a chance to impact on peoples’ perceptions of and engagement with sport and physical activity, which has much greater implications for the UK economy and the wider world.

The BSc (Hons) Sport Development degree provides a strong foundation to pursue such a career and is highly regarded by the student body.​ The course focuses on developing your intellectual knowledge and understanding of sport development within a local, national and international context, with a focus on school, community and elite sport. Course content considers the macro and micro components of effective sport development in relation to sport policy, sport management and marketing and the structure and resourcing of sport.
