Masters degrees in Sport Development focus on the social benefits of sport and the creation of new opportunities for individuals and groups. They equip students with specialised leadership skills alongside an understanding of important sociological and educational contexts.
Popular postgraduate specialisms include Sport and Community Development, Sport Business Management and Professional Development in Sport Coaching.
This is an ideal postgraduate specialism for individuals with an interest in sport and a commitment to expanding the health and social benefits it can offer. You’ll develop the skills necessary to lead innovative development programmes along with a grounding in relevant sports science and management knowledge.
Career opportunities in Sport Development include opportunities to work with important sporting and coaching organisations on a local or national level.
You could help support public health in the community as a sports development officer within a college or leisure centre. Or you could work with major government and professional bodies to boost training and development opportunities in specific sports and athletic pursuits: helping to identify and train the stars of the future.
