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.
Students require a good honours degree (or equivalent) in which a major part of their studies has incorporated aspects of sports. Other graduates who can demonstrate a commitment to the study of sport or who have significant experience in the sport industry will also be considered for entry.
