About

The Master of Science in Applied Sport and Exercise Psychology from South East Technological University provides the student with an in depth and comprehensive course of study in applied sport and exercise psychology designed to help enhance the sports participation and performance of athletes and coaches.

Overview

The overall aim of the course is to educate specialists in the field of Applied Sport and Exercise Psychology. Graduates from the South East Technological University will have the necessary knowledge, skills and abilities to work in the area of enhancing sports performance, sports participation and best practice at a variety of age and performance levels.

Graduates will have the ability to further the psychological development of athletes, coaches, teachers and other specialists from a broad-based, sound theoretical and applied course.  Applied sports psychology focuses on teaching skills to enhance athletic performance such as goal setting and imagery.  

Course Delivery

The programme is delivered through a blend of methods consisting of lectures, seminars, workshops, projects, e-learning and placement. The course is a full time course and lectures will run every Monday from 9 to 5 in semester 1 and 2.  Students must attend the residential weeks in each semester. Semester 3 also consists of 1 residential week and will be used to facilitate meetings with a personal portfolio supervisor.  

A student who accumulates 60 credits in Semester 1 and 2 and who does not wish to complete the MSc may, at the discretion of the Programme Board, be awarded a Postgraduate Diploma in Applied Sport & Exercise Psychology.

What are the career opportunities?

This MSc is designed to provide opportunities for athletes, coaches, physical education teachers, sports science graduates, sports leaders, sports development officers, volunteers and exercise specialists to upgrade their knowledge and develop applied skills in the area of applied sport, performance and exercise psychology. There is a demand for training in this field for those whose ambition is to work in high performance sport settings. 

In Ireland and the UK, many of those trained in applied sport and exercise psychology have undertaken roles as performance directors, sport coaches and sport management. Thus employability is likely to be strong not just for those who wish to train as practitioners, but for those for whom a postgraduate qualification in this domain augments their other qualifications and professional experience. 

Completion of the MSc in Applied Sport & Exercise Psychology can provide the basis for further professional qualifications by both the Irish Institute of Sport and the British Association of Sport Sciences. Both these organisations require a MSc in the field of sport and exercise psychology for professional recognition.
