Course content

With an emphasis on applied theory, practical work and community engagement, this programme provides students with a multidisciplinary understanding of sport science with an option to specialise in a particular area.

The MSc Sport Science is designed for graduates from sport-related degrees and professional practitioners wishing to keep their scientific knowledge and skills up to date.

You will be encouraged to undertake applied work in the areas that best fit your interests and career plans. Expert academics with specialist knowledge will mentor and support you through your chosen research project.

You can choose to focus your independent work within one of three named pathways – Biomechanics, Physiology or Psychology – or study the MSc Sport Science without a designated pathway, in order to reflect the interdisciplinary nature of your studies.
