TU Dublin Launches Part-Time BSc in Sports Studies
TU Dublin is delighted to announce a new Part-Time offering in Sports Studies launched at an Open Day event hosted by TU Dublin on the University's Tallaght Campus.
This innovative programme integrates our academic coursework with the University's world-class sports facilities to provide a unique and rewarding studying and sporting environment.
The BSc in Sports Studies is a 3-year part-time, level 7-degree course designed to meet the needs of coaches and sports administrators and is delivered on the University's Tallaght Campus. The course aims to develop, from evidence-based theory and practice, the students' ability to coach athletes (individually and in teams), manage sports teams and individual athletes, and manage courses of work for sporting bodies. The course integrates Sport Science, Coaching Science and Sports Administration and Governance. Sports Studies is a relatively new academic discipline in Ireland and brings together the key disciplines, which can support employment within the sports and health sector.
The University enjoys strong partnerships with many national governing bodies of sport, so students benefit from seminars with industry experts and numerous opportunities to gain valuable networking and practical experiences. As a result, students graduate with a breadth of knowledge and practical experiences that can be applied to a wide range of sport-related careers, from developing national sport to personal coaching.
