Human Sciences (Sport Physical Activity & Health, Psychology, Health & Social Care) MRes

Course Description


This degree is designed to develop your understanding of high quality research within the human sciences. As part of the department of Physical Education and Sport Studies, you will be a part of an exciting group investigating a range of contemporary issues in sport, exercise and health. Through this you will gain advanced knowledge, skills, and experience of conducting independent research.

Our MRes research projects, as part of the Sport, Physical Activity and Health Research Centre, often take advantage of the extensive links with community bodies and professional sport organisations. Such collaborations contribute to the students’ subject expertise and broader transferable skills. This programme therefore allows you to develop competencies as an independent learner and researcher in a specific field. The MRes Social Sciences provides a strong foundation for career progression and further study (e.g. PhD). More generally it will develop skills valued by employers such as high-level organisational skills, independent research skills, advanced oral and written communication, collaborative project work, and problem solving.

Course Content

Offered both full-time and part-time, the MRes includes a 90 credit independent research project with three supporting 30 credit modules (e.g., Advanced Research Methods). We adopt a flexible approach allowing you to tailor learning and research to your specific interests. This provides the opportunity to become a well-rounded and critical researcher within the social sciences. In addition, you will conduct high quality research in an area of your interest while being supervised by experts.

Research projects are welcome in the following areas of sport and exercise:
• Physical activity and health
• Psychology
• Physiology
• Biomechanics
• Sports coaching
• Sociology
