Course summary

About This Course

The MSci is an extended undergraduate programme that allows students to graduate either with a BSc (Hons) at the end of Year 3 or with a Masters at the end of Year 4. The School of Sport, Health and Exercise Sciences offer this course.

This degree concentrates on the overall aspects of sport and exercise and their importance in promoting healthy lifestyles.

We place a strong emphasis on applying theoretical knowledge to performance and all students, regardless of the course they are on, undertake a Research Skills module. This gives them the opportunity to integrate the knowledge they have accumulated in an individual Research Project during their MSci year. Both these modules are compulsory.

Research Skills – This covers three main topics; quantitative research design, the analysis of group differences and regression analyses using quantitative methods and qualitative research methods and analysis.

Students read series of scientific papers to develop their critical understanding of research design, including formulating a question, generating a hypothesis, study designs, sampling methods, ensuring validity and reliability, and good dissemination practices. Both original investigations and review studies will be included. The second topic involves using a wide variety of quantitative methods to analyse group differences and regression analyses. The qualitative part of the module will address the different philosophical positions underpinning quantitative and qualitative research; data collection methods, including interviews, focus groups and observational methods; and qualitative data analysis, including thematic content analysis, grounded theory and discourse analysis.
