Course summary

This programme focuses on the promotion and maintenance of physical activity related to public health and wellbeing. It will equip you with key specific skills and provide you with a unique insight into the intriguing interactions between physical activity and health by infusing epidemiology, physiology, psychology and policy-relevant research. You will also develop important skills in designing and evaluating research and community interventions that promote health behaviour change.

There is a clear consensus that new professional scientific needs are emerging within this field. This programme recognises the need for specialisation in the intertwined disciplines of physical activity and public health, which is differentiated from other MSc courses in public health. With real-world applicability it substantially contributes towards higher-level qualifications emerging in this area extending the knowledge and practical skills for health sector professionals, physical activity and fitness professionals, teachers or local government employees.

The degree aims to develop a systematic and critical understanding of current theory, research and debates at the forefront of physical activity and public health to influence population health and well-being; develop a comprehensive and critical understanding of technical competencies and professional and ethical practice in the field of physical activity and public health; develop a critical and systematic understanding of the planning, implementation and evaluation of public health projects; and foster a self-directed approach to learning.
