Msc Strength and Conditioning

Course Description

The MSc Strength and Conditioning is designed for individuals working in the strength and conditioning industry who wish to continue their professional development, or those wishing to increase their knowledge in preparation for a career in the field.

The degree offers you a coherent balance between academic knowledge (for evidence-based practice) and professional vocational skills. The modules emphasise both the theoretical knowledge underpinning strength and conditioning and the professional skills you'll need for a successful career in this exciting industry.

You will study the science and coaching of strength and conditioning by undertaking eight taught modules and a masters project. Each module builds on your undergraduate-level knowledge and makes strong links between theory and practice in areas such as biomechanics, physiology, nutrition and coaching, among others.

What you will learn

Each module consists of eight 3-hour taught sessions. Teaching is a traditional mixture of lectures, workshops and practicals, but with a strong emphasis on problem based approaches and a core commitment to evidence-based practice. Assessments are based on real world, practically focussed issues and are in the form of case studies, critical reviews, and presentations.

Specialist guest lecturers with a strong background in applied strength and conditioning contribute to each module on the course and have included coaches to elite athletes, book authors, internationally recognised researchers, NGB coaches, and internationally recognised strength and conditioning specialists.
