This course is being redeveloped and will not be accepting applications for September 2018.
Suitable for health professionals with an interest in exercise and the potential of physical activity, this course incorporates the exploration of physical activity in various critical settings within the public health arena (eg obesity, sedentary lifestyles and diabetes).
This is a flexible programme structured to provide core and option modules tailored to the individual student profile.
In parallel to and offering shared learning with the MSc Rehabilitation, this course offers the opportunity to enhance the skills of critical enquiry and gain an appreciation of the underlying theory, research and policy guiding current health practice. There is a strong emphasis on exercise physiology, the role of exercise through the lifespan, and psychology for exercise to understand issues critical to adherence and behaviour change.
