Sports Science is the application of scientific knowledge to improve athletic performance. It covers psychology, physiology, nutritional science and performance analysis, and Ireland universities offer courses incorporating the latest practice, theory and technology in medicine and training.
The demand for sports scientists has never been greater as many sports come to terms with a technological revolution which requires athletes to know their bodies inside out and be in constant peak condition. Sports Science courses in Ireland offer guest lectures from industry professionals, placements at professional teams and the opportunity to visit special conferences.
Sports Science graduates go on to become coaches, exercise physiologists, personal trainers, strength and conditioning coaches, membership advisors and local government sports development officers.
