Course Summary

OVERVIEW

Sport and exercise are more sophisticated than ever before. From the impact on our bodies to the impact on our communities, our understanding of the subject is growing every day. With that growth comes a whole range of specialist fields and niche subjects, not to mention a variety of career paths. This masters course can prepare you for those possibilities, offering the mix of critical thinking, expert knowledge and professional skills vital for new areas of health, exercise intervention and sports education.

It’s a course built on solid scientific and practical foundations. We provide an interdisciplinary perspective – giving you the chance to touch on areas like sport and exercise genetics and neuroscience in sport and exercise. As such, this is a flexible course that offers three pathways.

Pathways

  • MSc Sport and Exercise (Sport and Exercise Psychology)
  • MSc Sport and Exercise (Sport and Exercise Biomechanics)
  • MSc Sport and Exercise (Sport and Exercise Physiology)

So whether you see your future working in the lab, in the community or by the track, pitch or pool, we offer a route to the knowledge and skills you’ll need.

CAREER PROSPECTS

Our courses are designed to prepare you for a specialist future in sport and exercise, whether that means professional roles or continued studies. While many of our graduates pursue their PhD after achieving their masters, many others have gone into senior roles within education, from international professors to PE teachers to senior managers. It’s also a qualification that can take you far within healthcare, whether working in rehabilitation, health promotion or as a physiologist with the NHS or private provider.

Modules

This unit is the culmination of the Masters award and involves the design, conducting and communication of a major piece of independent research.
