Physical Education

At a time of increasing concerns about physical activity and health, the MA Physical Education programme explores the issues around physical activity and how to support the development of physical literacy from early childhood, through to later life in the home, school and community.

This programme is the only one of its kind in the UK and is supported by the Wales Institute for Physical Literacy. The programme is designed to be flexible to relate to the broad range of different contexts which all contribute to the development of physical literacy. The team of tutors that contribute to the programme are experts in the field. In the subject area of Physical Education the need for teachers with higher level knowledge and understanding of the potential and benefits of physical education could not be clearer with growing concerns over childhood and adolescent health and the long-term implications of inactivity. The course explores many aspects of learning in a physical context, personal philosophies of Physical Education, managing the Physical Education curriculum and meeting the needs of all learners to develop Physical Literacy throughout life.

The programme is the only one of its kind in Wales. It has attracted interest from teachers and practitioners from across Wales, the UK, Europe Canada and the United States. As part of their postgraduate studies students have the opportunity to take part in an international exchange programme.
