MSc - Master of Science
Research Methods (Science) Sports / Movement Science
The School of Sport and Exercise Sciences provides an excellent environment in which to conduct postgraduate research. The breadth of staff research interests enables us to provide research degree supervision in a range of areas in the sport and exercise sciences and in sports therapy.
This degree requires you to undertake a substantial, original research project, under the supervision of one or more members of academic staff who act as supervisors. Your supervisory team provides guidance both in terms of research project development and execution. Typically, you meet with your supervisors more frequently at the initial stages of research than during the phases of data collection and analysis.
There is a wide range of training available to Masters by Research students, including traditional, transferable skills and research specific training. This is either provided by Sport and Exercise Sciences staff, or by colleagues from the University's Graduate School.
You are also supported by attendance at the School’s postgraduate seminar series to develop subject specific knowledge and research skills relevant to your field of research.
Our programmes have been developed and designed to provide students with the required knowledge and skills to work autonomously in the field of sport science and sports therapy. The programmes provide opportunities for you to develop and demonstrate both specialist academic and transferable skills such as good communication, problem solving, critical analysis and the ability to work independently to a high standard. The programmes also aim to give you the opportunity to build long-term careers within your chosen field.
