Course summary

Course Details

Help people and communities lead healthier and happier lives by developing the expertise to promote active lifestyle choices. Regular physical activity is one of the greatest investments we can make to improve our wellbeing. Governments recognise this, and the drive to inspire people to be more active and minimise the impact of unhealthy lifestyle choices on health services and society in general has seen the demand for suitably trained professionals soar. You will examine the importance of physical activity across the lifespan, and you will develop the skills to encourage healthy habits from childhood through to adolescence and into adulthood and older age. You will work with people of all ages to identify health risks related to sedentary behaviours, and you will design and evaluate interventions to improve quality of life and reduce the risks of obesity, diabetes, mental ill-health and other conditions.

Course Benefits

You will benefit from being taught by a highly skilled and research-active teaching team who are world-leading in their field and have vast experience in sport, physical activity, nutrition, education, and health. Our team of academics include Professor Jim McKenna, the Head of the Active Lifestyles Centre and Professor Paul Gately, who founded the weight management organisation MoreLife in 1999. Both have contributed to seminal government reports and guidance, including the 2007 Physical Activity Guidelines and the International Obesity Task Force and World Health Organization's report on childhood obesity, and both continue to consult to many government agencies, health organisations and corporations throughout the world.
