Taught over two semesters, this module will provide year one students with a firm grounding in sport and exercise psychology, ahead of more specialist modules that feature in year two and year three of the degree programme. Embedded in theory and scientific research, this module will tackle questions such as "how do anxiety and arousal influence performance?", "how do positive emotions influence behaviour in sport and exercise?", "how do competition versus cooperation climates impact our feelings and actions?", "how do our perceptions influence action (and vice-versa)?"
Sport and exercise psychology topics that will be covered in this module include: "stress, anxiety, arousal", "historical perspectives on stress and performance", "positive emotion", "social interdependence theory", "psychological profiling", "psychological skills", "achievement motivation", "embodied perception and cognition".
B- to B+. Work displays sound knowledge and understanding but with some limitations. There is evidence of background study. The work had a defined and logical structure but with some weaknesses in the way in which arguments are presented. There is some original interpretation and demonstration of links between topics. The work is presented carefully with accurate communication and few factual or computational errors.
D- to C+. The work only demonstrates knowledge of key areas/principles and there is limited evidence of originality or of background study. The work contains some irrelevant material and weaknesses in structure. Arguments are presented but they lack coherence. The work contains factual/computational errors with little evidence of problem solving. There are weaknesses in the standard of the presentation and its accuracy.
