As part of the course you will investigate the impacts of culture and society on sport, and how the sport of today has developed, identifying what motivates individuals and nations to adopt sport as a vehicle for recreation as well as promoting their political standing. There are a host of theories to study, including how skills of motion and strategy learned and developed; how competition has evolved and the impact of success on self-efficacy, motivation and self-confidence.
