Sport

The benefits of a Masters extend beyond improving your earning potential. They can provide you with personal and professional skills to accelerate your development. They are also an opportunity to differentiate yourself from your peers, many of whom will have similar A-level and undergraduate qualifications.

Graduates of the Master’s degree in Sport will be able to have a general understanding of a variety of subjects. These range from cardiovascular and respiratory physiology to nutrition and metabolism. The degree is concerned mainly with exercise, health and sport.

Even if you choose East Africa’s mythological, enchanting Tanzania; Senegal, land of teranga or South Africa, with its wide opportunities to soak in and serve, research in Africa will be overwhelming.

Leisure and Sport specialisms - MPhil / PhD The School of Health and Social Sciences welcomes expressions of interest in postgraduate research degrees in the field of leisure and sport. Research degree supervision is available in a number of areas within the social sciences and humanities. These include leisure and sport history; leisure, lifestyle and wellbeing; leisure, sport and physical activity policy; and community regeneration. With the construction of a health and wellbeing centre on the University campus, the school is particularly keen to receive proposals that explore the relationships between leisure, lifestyle and wellbeing. The University’s Centre for Worktown Studies, working in close co-operation with Bolton Museum and Archive Service, provides a portal for the academic use of the Humphrey Spender ‘Worktown’ photographs taken for Mass Observation in the 1930s. In this context, we would be interested in applications that explore the potential of these images in enhancing our understanding of leisure practices and experiences in this period. Subject overview The School of Health and Social Sciences has a strong track record in research and consultancy in the areas of leisure policy and the role of leisure and physical activity in community regeneration. In particular, it has expertise in the engagement of minority ethnic communities in physical activity. In addition, there is a vibrant research culture centred on the social history of leisure and tourism. Available projects Examples of recently completed and current doctoral programmes include a study of the formation of modern football 1830-1885 and an investigation into participation in physical activity amongst British South Asian males.
