Course content

The MA in Physical Education and Sport Studies will develop and enhance the knowledge and skills of its students to provide them with the potential to make a significant contribution to the sport and education industries. The ever changing and complex nature of this area means that there is a need for high quality, effective managers and leaders with the knowledge and capabilities to drive evolving education and community initiatives. Thus, the course is suitable for existing professionals within the sports and education industry and those with an appropriate undergraduate qualification who aspire to a career in the area of physical education and school sport.


This course will involve access to children and/or vulnerable adults. You will be required to obtain a satisfactory Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service clearance (formerly termed CRB) and we will guide you through this process.

The School of Sport and Wellbeing has strong links with a large number of sports organisations, including professional sports teams, public and private sector sports providers and grassroots sports clubs. We regularly invite guest speakers from industry to speak to students within modules across a range of our courses.


The teaching and learning environment will be interactive and challenging. It is organised to ensure that key concepts, theories and, where appropriate, practices relevant to work within the PESS sector form a central role in the student's learning. Throughout the programme students will engage in a range of learning activities including lectures, seminars, debates, case studies, presentations and group work. The staff on the programme are friendly and supportive and have a high degree of professional experience both within higher education and working in the industry. This means that learning is stimulating, creative and challenging.

Assessment includes consultancy reports, essays, presentations, interviews, and for those completing the Master of Arts Programme, a dissertation. All of these are designed to relate to current practice within the sports industry.
