Course Summary

The fields of exercise and sport science are becoming increasingly specialized demanding greater levels of understanding. Alongside this movement is the need to educate postgraduate students to be critical thinkers and be ready to adapt their skills to new areas of health, exercise intervention and sports education. The course encourages students to challenge themselves and the current knowledge and thinking within the field of exercise and sport. Students follow a common research methods training which is heavily hands-on utilizing the departmental laboratories and field-based techniques. Intellectually challenging and discipline-focused, this programme prepares you for a career within your chosen sub-discipline of exercise and sport at an advanced level. Underpinned by research and practitioner expertise, an interdisciplinary perspective is encouraged. The programme is flexible: major and minor in subjects to achieve your desired combination eg MSc Exercise and Sport (Biomechanics with Physiology). A Masters qualification typically comprises 180 credits, a PGDip 120 credits, a PGCert 60 credits, and an MFA 300 credits.
