Course Summary

About this course
LJMU's Exercise Physiology MSc is geared towards both classical physiology and research at the forefront of molecular exercise physiology.

Study on a programme developed by world-leading researchers in our pioneering School of Sport and Exercise Sciences
Access state-of-the-art physiology and biochemistry laboratories in our award-winning Tom Reilly Building
Benefit from a strong emphasis on active learning and practical training
Look forward to a variety of career opportunities, including working as an Exercise Physiologist in either sport science/athletic support or health assessment contexts, further study at Doctoral level and teaching and lecturing in science
Study full-time (1 year) or part-time (2 years)

There has never been a more exciting time to undertake an MSc in Exercise Physiology. Sport represents one of the world’s major businesses and scientists have an increasingly prominent role in working with athletes, coaches, governing bodies and industry to help optimise elite performance.

This Masters programme is ideal if you want to go on to specialise in physiology-related studies at a doctoral level for academic and professional development or if you aspire to a professional career in exercise physiology.

During your studies you will be provided with detailed knowledge of physiology applied to sport and exercise contexts. The programme is also designed to extend your knowledge beyond ‘classical’ exercise physiology studies and into the new arena of molecular exercise physiology. The curriculum is informed by a world class research infrastructure with over 20 full-time academic staff and support staff contributing to the taught modules and research dissertation.

You will be provided with extensive practical experience and academic development in fundamental scientific technical including research methods, statistical analysis and scientific communication.

As part of your course you will complete a record of competency in physiological assessment, deliver a conference presentation and gain first-hand experience of ‘wet lab’ techniques including western blotting and proteomics.

Assessment

How learning is monitored on your programme

To cater for the wide-ranging content of our courses and the varied learning preferences of our students, we offer a range of assessment methods on each programme. Assessment techniques vary from module to module to reflect relevant assessment approaches and the key learning points of each topic.

Each module has specific learning objectives which are formally assessed. The modes of assessment include: written essays, case reports, laboratory reports, computer assessments, written examinations, oral examinations and oral/poster presentations.

Modules

The aim of this module is to encourage critical understanding of how research is conducted and how quantitative data is handled and analysed. Typically, the module provides two hours of direct contact per week. You will receive stimulus lectures on topics concerned with research design and data analysis. You will also take part in computer practicals where you will be required to analyse data using a statistical package and interpret the statistical output.
