Specialise in Sport Development for your Bachelor of Sport and Exercise at Massey
Sport Development is multi-disciplinary. It can relate to the ‘development of sport’ and the wider society-based ‘sport for development’.
The Bachelor of Sport and Exercise (Sport Development) will prepare you for work in this varied and fast growing area of the sport industry, whether you are looking at sport from the perspective of:
developing athlete career pathways,
establishing corporate social responsibility initiatives that lead to social change, or,
enhancing the function of sport organisations.
This qualification will provide knowledge in topics such as sport sociology, sport event management and the effective coordination of sport organisations. It will also teach you about health, coaching, community, and sport pedagogy. You will be further prepared for a career in sport development through a customised ‘Professional Development for the Sport Industry’ course, followed by a guided industry-based practicum.
You will take a set of compulsory courses, common to all the BSpEx majors, followed by a set of prescribed courses specific to sport development.
Our strong connections within the sport industry, including a number of national and regional sport and recreation organisations, provide opportunities for you to gain valuable experience. You will apply your knowledge while placed at one of these organisations during your sport and exercise practicum.
If you successfully complete this qualification, you could go on to further study, for instance the Master of Health Science.
A Bachelor of Sport and Exercise in Sport Development is a good fit if you:
want to help promote sport participation
want to work with community partners to extend the outcomes sport has to offer
see the potential for sport and physical activity to positively influence society.
