Overview

This Sport Performance Enhancement  course from Edinburgh Napier University  will give you expert knowledge in a specialist area of the science of sport performance enhancement. It will develop applied techniques which will help you pursue a career in sport science support, academic research, teaching or other science-based professions.

The applied focus of this course is supported by contemporary, well-equipped and supported laboratory facilities.

Course details

Traditionally, sport science has been based on three foundational scientific disciplines - physiology, biomechanics and psychology. You’ll either study two disciplines in breadth or a single discipline in depth with a negotiated independent study.

This course provides a contemporary, interdisciplinary and applied approach to the science of sport performance enhancement. You'll have the opportunity to advance your knowledge and understanding of scientific principles in this context. You'll learn how to apply theoretical concepts and to develop practical professional skills for situations that sports scientists encounter on a daily basis.

You’ll also study research methods and data analysis and will work on an interdisciplinary team providing support services for an athlete client, which will expose you to a range of practical and ethical issues associated with support work.

You’ll be able to employ advanced investigative, analytical and practical techniques in your field and increase your employability in an academic or applied setting.
