Sports Studies

Diploma in Arts

Take a different view of sport, activity and leisure from sociological, historical, economic and psychological perspectives.

You will undertake courses in the social science and humanities areas of the study of sport as well as courses relating to the sociology of sport and the human body in society. You'll understand the role and importance of sport, and how different social factors can influence motivation and participation.

The growth in the sport, physical activity and health industries over the past two decades has created a range of employment opportunities in the areas of social policy, journalism, management, marketing, planning and development, education, and psychology.
