The MSc Coaching Science programme provides students with the opportunity to develop and explore their personal coaching practice alongside coaches from a range of sport disciplines. Core ‘Coaching Craft’ and ‘Reflective Practice’ modules examine key transferable skills and provide a theoretical framework which allows individuals to create a personalised ‘Professional Development Portfolio’ that charts their collaboration with guest contributors from a wide array of external governing bodies and agencies. Managed coaching observations provide a further important portfolio experience with a Postgraduate Certificate being awarded to students who complete this initial group of modules.

Those choosing to continue their studies move from the programme’s core to complete a Postgraduate Diploma with a selection of contextualised modules each focusing on a potential future site of employment. Not only do these components aim to develop understanding of teaching, coach education and high performing coach environments but they also tailor their assessment methods to mirror the demands of these professional roles and support long term engagement with advanced practitioners from these domains.

Postgraduate research itself is treated as a further context in which coaching scientists can increase their skills base with completion of a research process module allowing for a sound foundation from which to complete a dissertation project in order to convert their PG Diploma into a Master’s degree.

Currently the MSc Coaching Science programme can be completed full-time in one year or via part-time negotiated study plans ranging from 2 to 6 years depending on personal circumstances and career goals.

The Professional Development (Coaching Science) programme is designed to allow coaches from all sporting environments to develop their practice and professional network by completing a range of portfolio projects negotiated in partnership with personal tutors from Hartpury College’s HE Sport department. Read more
The Professional Development (Coaching Science) programme is designed to allow coaches from all sporting environments to develop their practice and professional network by completing a range of portfolio projects negotiated in partnership with personal tutors from Hartpury College’s HE Sport department. Portfolio projects can be completed by individuals or may form a component of a group effort with coaches working together to investigate an aspect of personal practice before creating an output, such as a report or presentation, that can be published to the wider coaching community. These portfolios can therefore focus on part of the learner’s current workplace responsibilities or be used to plan future ventures directly linked to the coach’s environment and career progression plans.

This innovative approach to postgraduate study allows coaches to focus their research on a number of possible coaching contexts including teaching, coach education and supporting high performance athletes, and therefore to design their own powerful professional development experiences. Core coaching modules are studied alongside students completing the MSc Coaching Science programme, allowing valuable sharing of perspectives and resources across and amongst two related courses that each have individual development needs and group collaboration as their key concern.

All students complete three core modules that focus on the craft of coaching practice, and related areas of concern such as coach philosophy, language, behaviour and planning. Whilst involved in these key debates coaches will also be developing a personal learning plan via an appreciation of reflective practice. These experiences are collated in a Professional Development Portfolio with discussions amongst learning peers and with personal tutors central to this course component. Upon completion of the programme’s core modules students qualify for a Postgraduate Certificate and may choose to continue their studies via focused research into a single coaching context (perhaps due to it mirroring their current workplace or career aspirations) or through study of a broader range of topics, each negotiated by themselves and their tutor. Completion of this phase of the programme sees students eligible for a Postgraduate Diploma and able to carry out an extended final project that once successfully completed results in the award of a Master’s degree.

Module delivery will be supported by a range of student-centred approaches (e.g. distance learning and practice-based activities) and will include peer learning sets which could be face-to-face and/or supported electronically. The programme design team is committed to adult learning approaches that include the development of learning contracts and critical and independent enquiry for the coaching practice-based elements. Assessment methods reflect adult learning principles also, allowing students to shape and develop academic work that focuses on current coaching practice and personal development. Students will benefit from an enhanced learning experience by engaging in a variety of creative teaching mediums such as mentorship, peer modelling, reflective discussion, video observation feedback and experiments in practice.

The programme can be completed full time in one year; part time routes are available and should be planned with the Programme Manager.

Master of Kinesiology

The Master of Kinesiology (MKin) is a non-thesis, course-based degree with potential areas of study, including Socio-Managerial, Natural/Physical Science, Behavioural Science and Coaching Science. No research is involved: This is the main difference between the MKin and MA/MSc programs. The most popular stream is Coaching Science and the program contains approximately 18-20 graduate students each year. The average time to completion is 1 year (30-credit program). For more than 20 years, the Coaching Science program has supported the coaching careers of many different sport coaches by enhancing their theoretical development and practical growth. The internship program allows the students to exploit their coaching philosophy and challenge their skills.

The Coaching Science stream in the MKIN program prepares students for employment in coaching at various levels (high school, club, varsity, strength and conditioning) or in some specific cases to pursue further studies in a PhD program. Recent graduates have taken positions as head or assistant coaches in varsity programs, community programs, and the private sector as strength and conditioning coaches. Graduates from this program have also become Program Managers/Directors of Athletics and Recreation in their respective institutions.

What makes the program unique?

The Coaching Science stream in the MKin program is extremely diverse with more than 30% of graduate students coming from many different countries. This international, collaborative environment fosters the exploration of best practices and encourages the students to seek personal growth through interaction and discussion. We are a small enough cohort that students and faculty are able to enjoy regular one-on-one contact. Additionally, the programs’ flexibility leverages on the wide selection of seminar-based courses and independent directed studies. Lastly, the various streams offer the graduate student the opportunity to enhance their expertise in the interdisciplinary nature of kinesiology.

The MSc Sports Coaching is an advanced programme that considers the scientific dimensions of sport coaching. Integration of technology is a key aspect of the programme and will be used to support the development of research and practice in coaching and coach education.

The teaching team have significant applied expertise in the subject and have developed innovative, technology enhanced approaches to learning and teaching in coaching. There will also be the opportunity to undertake relevant vocational qualifications and work placement while on the programme. This will be tailored to your needs through working with a tutor and be aligned with the SportCoach UK Level 4 competencies.

Course detail

The Sport Coaching will utilise and evaluate concepts from a range of disciplines including sport psychology, athlete development and movement analysis. This aims to challenge your approach to coaching and provide a broader perspective to support children and talented performers. The programme is for individuals holding a sport coaching related undergraduate degree or those with significant practical coaching experience and qualifications who want to consider the application of scientific principles to their work as a coach.

The learning activities and assessments on the programme are highly applied and focussed upon developing students’ ability to evaluate critically the quality and impact of their own work. A key aspect is the engagement with existing academic
literature and the production of research to provide evidence that can be used to inform coaching practice.

There is scope for negotiation in terms of practical work and focus of assessment on modules depending upon individual experience or areas of interest. For example, on the Psychological Dimensions of Coaching module this could mean development of an individualised psychological skills intervention for a high level athlete or an educational workshop for a youth team with a range of needs and abilities.

Modules

• Performance analysis – using advanced performance analysis techniques to collect data in specific settings to inform athletic needs.

• Research Methods – become informed consumers and producers of research in a range of paradigms and using a variety of approaches.

• Psychological Dimensions of coaching – appreciate existing psychological concepts and how they can be used to promote behaviour change in sport performance and coaching setting with diverse audiences.

• Athlete Development – appreciate the inter-play between growth and maturation and use physiological and psychological markers to develop performance during growth.

• Produce a written manuscript of publishable quality that addresses a research question relevant to strength and conditioning.

Placements

Work-related learning is a key part of the activities and assessments on modules. In order to effectively undertake these tasks students will need to draw upon experiences from employment, continuous personal development (CPD) or a work placement. There are opportunities to undertake relevant CPD and work placement while on the programme.

Completion of a Personal and Academic Development Profile (PADP), through the academic tutor system, will help to identify which opportunities individuals could access to support their working towards the UKCC Level 4 generic competencies.

An example of the types of opportunities available through our partnerships would be a movement coaching experience with North Yorkshire FA Girls Centre of Excellence or a Level 3 coaching qualification facilitated by YSJ Active. Such experiences and skills will support the programme of academic study by offering tangible examples for application of theory, critical analysis and reflective practice.

Equine Education includes interdisciplinary courses in coaching and sports management to strengthen knowledge for careers as collegiate riding instructors, equestrian team coaches, horse judging team coaches, or agents for the Cooperative Extension Service.

Equine Physiology emphasizes an interdisciplinary, science-based curriculum structured to build knowledge of scientific principles and apply these principles to a thesis research project related to equine science. Students successfully completing the concentration are prepared for admission into an animal science or equine science Ph.D. program. Students entering this concentration must have a strong foundation in undergraduate biology and chemistry, including organic chemistry.

Industry Management allows students to complete interdisciplinary courses in business management, marketing, and/or sports management to tailor their curriculum for specific industry-related careers.

Equine Education or Industry Management students may choose a research-based thesis or a non-thesis equine experiential learning option. Equine Physiology students must complete a research-based thesis.

The selection procedure is a two-phase process. Based on a review of applications to the M.S. Horse Science program, qualified students are invited for an interview at their expense. Not all applicants are invited for the personal interview.

Do you already have an academic bachelor’s degree in another scientific field and do you want to pursue your academic career in the field of Computer Science? Then the master’s in Applied Computer Sciences is the programme you’re looking for! It is organised in such a way to accommodate your scientific background and future-oriented academic interests – developing the necessary Computer Science skills by complementing your primary field of expertise. Above all that, we offer a wide variety of highly specialised elective courses.

Approach

The first year of the programme focuses on developing knowledge of computer science concepts and techniques, with respect to the earlier studies. Lectures address both hardware and software. Elective courses in the second year allow applying the skills established in the first year, in a specialization, such as software development, telecommunications, multimedia, numeric engineering, bioinformatics, or robotics, as well as many other possibilities. Practical sessions and a master's thesis are also built into the study program.

 All areas of computer science are covered
The programme offers lectures in all traditional areas of the computer science and also in more specialized fields like software engineering, embedded systems, web design, telecommunications, multimedia, bioinformatics, robotics and many other subjects.

 Adaptable to your background and field of interest
Since Computer Science has become a diffuse area, we decided to organize this programme in a way that it can be adapted to the background and the field of interest of the student. Students start with a number of courses (depending on their background) summarizing the basic concepts in order to gain enough knowledge to be able to take elective courses and to make a master thesis in their field of interest. All this happens in an academic environment where research is done in all topics with great interaction among the researchers and large involvement of the students.

Joint organisation of two departments provides wide range of research topics
Two departments, the Department of Computer Science in the Faculty of Science and the Department of Electronics and Informatics in the Faculty of Engineering, jointly organise the Master programmes. Together, they have more than 200 researchers who cover a wide range of research topics.

Learning outcomes

During the two master years students are able to continue to build on the broad ranging basic scientific knowledge acquired as part of their Bachelor programme, complemented with the Information Technology profile, combining a multidisciplinary engineering training with an in-depth specialisation in Applied Computer Science.

The Master of Science in Applied Sciences and Engineering : Applied Computer Science programme is designed to train young people who are capable of making an effective contribution to the conception, realisation and coaching of projects of scientific and/or technological scope for the benefit of the fast-changing world we live in.

Delivered by experts with extensive experience in sports research, this programme prepares you for a career as a coach, strength and
conditioner, and for a career in sport science support.

About the programme

You will develop your conceptual and theoretical understanding in the field of sports coaching and learn practical skills in a range of scientific disciplines to enhance the coaching process. You will critically reflect upon contemporary principles and practices in sports coaching with an emphasis on students becoming effective and reflective practitioners. A significant proportion of the programme is vocationally focused and student driven.

Lectures normally account for 50% of class contact time with the remainder consisting of seminars, practical sessions, laboratory sessions, oral presentations, case studies and poster presentations. You will also have the opportunity to gain experience observing and participating in the service delivery of high performance sport with organisations including St. Mirren FC and The Scottish Institute of Sport.

Practical experience

Practical sessions are supervised and take place in our exercise physiology, strength and conditioning, and sports analysis laboratories. Classes involve observation, demonstration, participation, problem-solving and reporting while others are field-based,
providing necessary practical skills to successfully intervene in an athlete’s physical development. All programme units are explicitly devised to address the optimisation of performance.
