Course content

The MSc Strength and Conditioning is designed for individuals working in the strength and conditioning industry who wish to continue their professional development, or those wishing to increase their knowledge in preparation for a career in the field.

The degree offers you a coherent balance between academic knowledge (for evidence-based practice) and professional vocational skills. The modules emphasise both the theoretical knowledge underpinning strength and conditioning and the professional skills you'll need for a successful career in this exciting industry.

You will study the science and coaching of strength and conditioning by undertaking eight taught modules and a masters project. Each module builds on your undergraduate-level knowledge and makes strong links between theory and practice in areas such as biomechanics, physiology, nutrition and coaching, among others.
