Course content

Do you have a keen interest in issues surrounding physical activity, ageing, health and sports? Do you want to know how exercise influences health and disease? Then Human Movement Sciences could be just the programme for you.

The biological basis of exercise
Human beings were designed for daily physical activity. But in the modern world our sedentary lifestyle has led to chronic diseases like obesity, cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes. Governments are increasingly recognising the importance of physical activity as a public health issue. This programme covers all aspects of the relationship between physical activity and health – from patients trying to get better, to individuals just trying to stay fit, to top athletes aiming for the pinnacle of their sport.
