Students will acquire knowledge and have opportunities to apply what they learn to interventions and policy making that enrich peoples’ lives through physical activity, sport and leisure. They will gain theoretical and practical training in why and how to encourage people to become more active and how to better peoples’ experiences in various contexts. Students will critically examine how interventions and policies lead to improved health, well-being, development, learning, and performance in individuals and society, and will learn to develop, implement and evaluate programs. Students will receive training informed by social sciences (e.g., psychology, sociocultural, pedagogy, leisure studies). They will have opportunities to acquire motivational and consulting skills to work with individuals in different contexts. For example, they can learn behavioural change techniques to promote physical activity, or how to work with athletes to prepare them for competition.
