    Programme Description

    Increases in chronic diseases and obesity are placing an enormous strain on resources. This masters programme is designed to address this issue - not just to `patch up´ the problem, but to help change social perceptions and action policy in addition to addressing the underlying theme of prevention.

    This new course is suitable for any professional with an interest in exercise. It incorporates social marketing and policy issues in a multidisciplinary and holistic fashion, with a strong emphasis on exercise physiology and psychology.

    Option modules allow you to focus on an area of interest or your specialist area of practice. You can also take individual modules as free-standing short courses without committing to the MSc. Teaching takes place though a mixture of lectures, workshops, tutorials and laboratory practicals.
