AMERICAN STUDIES

America is distinct among modern countries because of the stories it tells about itself; as the land of the free, and as a site of endless possibilities. A degree in American Studies asks you to uncover the stories that are not being told and to interrogate the world’s superpower using a variety of disciplinary approaches. This degree will equip you with the tools you need to make sense of the world and to learn from a decidedly decolonised curriculum that privileges the histories and cultures of marginalised and oppressed peoples. Our academics are leading researchers in American Cinema, History, Literature, and Politics and we bring our expert knowledge to bear in challenging and rewarding classes, on topics including the civil rights movement, contemporary presidential politics, and the literature of the Deep South.

You will explore areas including:

  • American film, journalism, literature, and music
  • histories of race, colonialism and oppression
  • the frontier at home and abroad in the context of politics and foreign relations
  • issues of ethnicity, gender, and class

SPORT AND EXERCISE SCIENCE

This engaging programme offers you the opportunity to explore the science behind physical activity and sports performance.

Under the guidance of a dynamic team of research-active staff, you will study biomechanics, physiology, psychology and sociology, with an emphasis on practical application.

You will have access to well-equipped laboratories where you will gain valuable experience in measuring and assessing physical activity relevant to competitive sport and recreational exercise, fitness and health.

You will also have the opportunity to work within our consultancy unit, SportsLab, using your expertise to help athletes improve their performance.

You can opt to follow a broad pathway through the sport and exercise sciences, or focus more specifically on competitive sport performance or exercise and health outcomes .

You will explore areas including:

  • sport exercise and fitness
  • applied sport psychology
  • physical activity and health.
