Exercise Physiology

This Sport Masters programme is delivered by world-leading experts at Liverpool John Moores University. You will have access to excellent facilities, geared towards both classical physiology and research at the forefront of molecular exercise physiology. Sport and Exercise Science is also playing an increasingly important role in society by promoting exercise for healthy ageing and the prevention of premature death from cardiovascular disease, cancer and obesity.Our teaching is delivered primarily through laboratory practicals and student-centred learning techniques, such as problem-based learning. During this programme you will complete a record of competency in physiological assessment, deliver a conference presentation and gain first-hand experience of 'wet lab' techniques including western blotting and proteomics. From this foundation, many of our graduates go on to conduct doctoral research within academic/clinical institutions, sport clubs and allied organisations.

Course modules

Molecular Exercise Physiology Provides a 1:1 mix of theory and practical training in molecular exercise physiology. •Physiological Assessment Provides extensive practical training in exercise physiology laboratory tests. • Integrative Physiology and Metabolic Regulation A lecture series on integrative human physiology and metabolism. • Applied Practice in Exercise Physiology Examines the science underpinning 'wearable' technologies to monitor both health and performance-based exercise programmes. • Contemporary Research in Exercise Physiology Explores the latest research using a 'Journal Club' format. • Research Methods Data collected during the Physiological Assessment module is used to teach statistical analysis techniques. • Masters Research Project Dissertation projects are undertaken within research themes led by staff and associated PhD students.

Assessment methods

Each module has specific learning objectives which are formally assessed. The modes of assessment are diverse and include: written essays, case reports, laboratory reports, computer assessments, written examinations, oral examinations and oral/poster presentations. After completing this course you should be able to demonstrate self-direction and originality in tackling and solving problems, and act autonomously in planning and implementing tasks at a professional level.
