3 Centre for Sport and Exercise Science FACULTY OF BIOLOGICAL SCIENCES All intercalating degrees at Leeds arein Relation to Medicine. This is a stand alone degree, giving you the opportunity to develop an interest outside, although in many ways relevant to, medicine. The programme follows as closely as possible the final year of the BSc Sport & Exercise Science programmes offered by the Faculty. Duration 1 year. What is Sports Science in Relation to Medicine?

4 Centre for Sport and Exercise Science FACULTY OF BIOLOGICAL SCIENCES BSc Sports Science degree programmes include: 4 disciplines Biomechanics Exercise physiology Motor control Sports psychology Plus Anatomy Statistics and Research Methods

5 Centre for Sport and Exercise Science FACULTY OF BIOLOGICAL SCIENCES The 4 Disciplines of Sport and Exercise Science Biomechanics the study of the mechanics (forces and motions) of human movement – performance, technique and injury. Exercise Physiology how the body functions during exercise and how it responds to long term exercise training. – metabolism, respiration, body composition; muscle function. Motor Control the processes that underlie movement control, skill acquisition and retention. Sports Psychology the thoughts, feelings and emotions of individuals and how these influence human behaviour in sport and exercise.

7 Centre for Sport and Exercise Science FACULTY OF BIOLOGICAL SCIENCES These are typically aligned to the research interests of staff. You will work in small research teams to collect data and then independently produce your research paper. Recent Topics: Making it happen: from goal setting to goal pursuit Does "winning at all costs" help the athlete to cope better with stress? Oxygen uptake kinetics during exercise Coping with stress in Sport and Exercise Impact of physical activity upon central and peripheral aortic stiffness in women Childrens Gait The relationship between diet and cardiovascular disease risk in postmenopausal women The effect of open and closed stance on postural control in archery Acclimatization and the endurance athlete Can exercise halt the ageing decline of the heart? Positional load carriage and relationship to plantar pressure distribution Muscle Activation Incline Decline Running Manipulating the sleep-wake cycle to improve athletic performance Effectiveness of breakfast fitness clubs and early morning fitness sessions Coordination strategies - how do we control complex movements? Fluid balance / sports drinks and hot & humid environments Pre-season determinants of injury in a chosen sport Research project
