Health, Sport and Human Performance Papers at Tauranga (2018)

Health, Sport and Human Performance draws on a range of theoretical and applied perspectives to examine the political, cultural, economic and social forces that influence communities and organisations as well as people's behaviour in relation to sport and leisure. The development of career interests is achieved through the completion of a number of compulsory papers and a selection of a series of other papers suited to the students' interests and career aspirations.

Note: There will be no new enrolments into the Health, Sport and Human Performance major (formerly Sport and Leisure Studies) in 2018, instead new students are directed to new majors in Community Health, Human Performance Science, and Sport Development and Coaching. Students are encouraged to contact the Faculty of Health, Sport and Human Performance for programme advice.
