MSc/PGDip Musculoskeletal Sport Science and Health
Year of entry: 2016
Duration: 1 year full-time (part-time available)
Institutions: Loughborough University and The University of Nottingham
This programme aims to provide you with further knowledge of the scientific concepts and procedures underpinning sport and exercise related musculoskeletal function, measurement, injury and treatment.
The programme will allow you to adopt a multidisciplinary approach to the scientific study of sport and exercise related musculoskeletal health and performance including anatomy, physiology, biomechanics, bioengineering, and kinesiology. You will have the opportunity to carry out in-depth and critical research in selected areas of interest.
Core study areas include orthopaedic biomechanics, neuromuscular function, physiology of exercise and sport, immediate and pre-hospital care of the injured athlete, research methods for sport and exercise, basic science and regenerative therapy, emerging technologies for health and wellbeing, motion analysis of human movement, developing computer models for sports biomechanics, sports injury, and a research project.
This course is delivered in connection with the NCSEM-EM and is primarily taught at Loughborough University. The course is delivered in conjunction with The University of Nottingham with the option to take some modules at Nottingham (assistance with travel expenses between campuses is included within the programme fees).
