Our programmes

MSc Dance Science & Education

If you’re interested in the development of dance education, a comprehensive understanding of the science underpinning the art form is a must. This innovative programme offers just that, giving you the scientific theory and specialist skills that will inspire you to push the frontiers of dance and dance education.

MSc Performance Psychology

Increasingly, high-level performance relies on an understanding of the psychology of stamina and success. Drawing on current research and practice, this fascinating programme introduces you to the issues that relate to both individual and group performance and encourages you to develop techniques to minimise the influence of limitations, such as anxiety and distraction.

MSc Physical Activity for Health

Insufficient physical activity is the fourth leading risk factor for premature mortality. It has recently been recognised as a pandemic and is a global public health issue. This programme draws from the health sciences of psychology, physiology and epidemiology to enhance knowledge and understanding of the global issues pertinent to physical activity for health.

MSc Sport Policy, Management & International Development

Recognising that sport managers operate in a highly politicised environment, this programme reviews the role of government policy in shaping sporting opportunities and sport’s contribution to social policy agendas. You will also focus on management issues in contemporary sport organisations, the media’s role in sport management debates, and sport marketing and communications concepts.

MSc Strength & Conditioning

Strength and Conditioning is a subject of increasing focus, particularly in areas of applied scientific study such as sports performance, injury prevention, geriatric and rehabilitating populations. With a primary emphasis on sports performance-based issues, the programme combines both the theoretical and practical elements of strength and conditioning to identify and examine a wide range of academic and practitioner needs.
