The Institute of Sports Humanities seeks to establish a new relationship between academia and the sports industry. The MA Leadership in Sport, the inaugural programme at ISH, is designed for the next generation of leaders in sport: players, captains, coaches, administrators, entrepreneurs, as well as the sports media.

A student who graduates with a thorough understanding of sport’s historical perspective, who can draw on critical thinking, see through jargon, exercise good judgment, and communicate on paper or in the flesh with the verve that a top player shows on the field – such a graduate will add huge value in sport.

  • To inspire and equip sport’s next generation of leaders

  • Practical thinking drawn from a range of academic disciplines

  • A new network of thinkers across sport

  • Helping employers reward and develop future talent
