Ne öğreneceğim?

Sport and exercise scientists use research and analysis to give specialist advice to improve individual or team athletic performance. They also design and administer appropriate methods of assessment, and create exercise or training programmes aimed at improving either health or sporting performance.

As a sport scientist, you must be well versed in technical, physiological and psychological aspects of your field in order to cover territory as diverse as exercise testing, psychological preparation for competition, movement analysis, dietary considerations and strength training.

Early on in DCU’s Sport Science and Health course, you’ll examine the key science subjects that form the backbone of this degree: chemistry, physics, anatomy, physiology, psychology and sociology. As you progress, you’ll learn how these subjects are applied to the study of sport, exercise and health, and what role factors like nutrition and genetics play, as well.

About the course

The Sport Science and Health degree will help you develop a detailed understanding of the scientific aspects of sport and physical activity. You’ll also be shown how these are investigated and applied. The objective of the course is to produce well-informed science graduates who think critically and creatively, can apply knowledge and are prepared for employment in a variety of sectors.

In Year One, you’ll study the degree’s key science subjects, including chemistry, physics, physiology, psychology and sociology. In addition, there are a range of practical classes and sessions in sport and physical activity.
