Course summary

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.

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.

This course will involve you working with vulnerable groups of individuals, including children. In order to ensure that the University offers places on their programmes to suitable candidates you will all be required to obtain a satisfactory Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service clearance (formerly termed CRB). We will be able to guide you through this process once you have been offered a conditional place of study at the University of Central Lancashire.

The School of Sport and Health Sciences has strong links with many 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.
