Sports Studies

This programme combines taught modules and independent study to offer students in sports studies the opportunity to develop specialist, in-depth knowledge within the sporting context; this might include, for example, aspects of the sociology of sport, safeguarding and child protection in sport, disability and sport, or the relationship between gender and sexuality and sport; students are immersed in research training and develop a research proposal prior to undertaking in-depth and extended research in a specific area of sports studies of choice; an innovative student-led approach means individual research interests are truly at the heart of studying for this MRes award.
