The Sport Science and Management (SSM) programme is the sole degree programme offered by a national university in Singapore that offers undergraduates academic and professional pathways to sport-related careers. The four-year direct honours programme imbues knowledge in areas such as physiology, biomechanics, skill acquisition, psychology, sport management and coaching, to help develop pertinent skills for engagement in the sport industry.
Specifically conceptualized with the objective to train qualified sports professionals, SSM undergraduates are provided with relevant research and appropriate industry experience via the academic project and the internship programme during their studies. They will also benefit from a rich undergraduate experience with an academic broadening component chosen from amongst arts, humanities & social sciences, science, technology and society, business and management and liberal studies.
Outstanding undergraduates have opportunities to spend up to six months at overseas universities as part of an exchange experience. Overseas expedition stints organised in collaboration with industry partners also allows undergraduates opportunities for personal growth, team and leadership development.
With state-of-the-art sport science laboratories as well as other facilities at NTU, and taught by well-qualified academic staff, SSM provides a holistic and unparalleled learning experience that prepares students for exciting careers in the sport industry.
