About the course

What is the role of sport in a world facing pressing social challenges? How do we understand the possibilities and challenges of sport as a platform for social change? How do we examine and analyse sport and sport science research to find new perspectives on the role of sports? How can we look critically at the development of sport in relation to social processes such as globalisation, migration and urbanisation?

Sport Science: Sport in Society is a two-year master’s programme that tackles these questions. During the programme, students develop applied skills and a critical knowledge base to work with sport, leisure, and health industries as platforms for social change.

Degree

Master's Degree (120 credits).
