This Sport Masters programme is delivered by world-leading experts at Liverpool John Moores University. You will have access to excellent facilities, geared towards both classical physiology and research at the forefront of molecular exercise physiology.
•Course available to study full time (1 year) and part time (2 years) •Developed by world-leading researchers in our pioneering School of Sport and Exercise Science •Access to state-of-the-art physiology and biochemistry laboratories in our award-winning Tom Reilly Building •Strong emphasis on active learning and practical training •Career opportunities in teaching and lecturing, as applied practitioners in sport science support programmes of further study at Doctoral level
There has never been a more exciting time to undertake an MSc in Exercise Physiology. Sport represents one of the world’s major businesses and scientists have an increasingly prominent role in working with athletes, coaches, governing bodies and industry to help optimise elite performance.
Sport and Exercise Science is also playing an increasingly important role in society by promoting exercise for healthy ageing and the prevention of premature death from cardiovascular disease, cancer and obesity.Our teaching is delivered primarily through laboratory practicals and student-centred learning techniques, such as problem-based learning. During this programme you will complete a record of competency in physiological assessment, deliver a conference presentation and gain first-hand experience of ‘wet lab’ techniques including western blotting and proteomics.
From this foundation, many of our graduates go on to conduct doctoral research within academic/clinical institutions, sport clubs and allied organisations.
Please see guidance below on core and option modules for further information on what you will study.
• Molecular Exercise Physiology
Provides a 1:1 mix of theory and practical training in molecular exercise physiology.
Provides extensive practical training in exercise physiology laboratory tests.
• Integrative Physiology and Metabolic Regulation
A lecture series on integrative human physiology and metabolism.
• Applied Practice in Exercise Physiology
Examines the science underpinning ‘wearable’ technologies to monitor both health and performance-based exercise programmes.
• Contemporary Research in Exercise Physiology
Explores the latest research using a ‘Journal Club’ format.
• Research Methods
Data collected during the Physiological Assessment module is used to teach statistical analysis techniques.
• Masters Research Project
Dissertation projects are undertaken within research themes led by staff and associated PhD students.
Further guidance on modules
The information listed in the section entitled ‘What you will study’ is an overview of the academic content of the programme that will take the form of either core or option modules. Modules are designated as core or option in accordance with professional body requirements and internal Academic Framework review, so may be subject to change. Students will be required to undertake modules that the University designates as core and will have a choice of designated option modules. Additionally, option modules may be offered subject to meeting minimum student numbers.
