Physiotherapy is a field of health care that aims to rehabilitate and improve health of people with movement disabilities. Evidence-based methods are used including relevant exercises, motivation, adapted equipment, education and advocacy. Physiotherapy deals with the interaction between physical therapists (physiotherapist) and the patients. Physiotherapists are able to diagnose and treat impairment or disabilities of clients. The study field has many areas such as pediatrics, orthopedic, neurologic, geriatrics, cardiopulmonary, wound care, sports, EMG. Graduates can work in many different areas, such as clinical electrophysiology, neurology, geriatric, pediatric, integumentary, cardiovascular, pulmonary, orthopedic and etc.
Studying on the Master´s Degree Programme in Social Services and Health Care, Clinical and Rehabilitation Expertise, is for those who are developers, interested in ‘health tech’ environments and interdisciplinary work, and who are willing to encounter new professional challenges. The focus is on modern and innovative methods, research, development and innovations in the social and health care field and entrepreneurship in the context of Health Care, Rehabilitation and Social Welfare.
The Graduate Pathway in Exercise Science offers you the chance to enhance your English and academic ability. It will prepare you to successfully pursue graduate studies at Marshall University.
The Master’s Foundation Programme is available as a one, two or three-term programme, with guaranteed progression to a wide range of Life Sciences Master’s degrees at the University of Sunderland. You will live and study your Foundation programme at our state-of-the-art Centre located at the heart of the University of Sunderland City campus.
The PMHNP certificate is a 4-semester, part-time opportunity for the working RN. Web delivery of course content is complemented with campus experiences for learning and demonstrating health assessment skills.
This intensive and exciting new programme provides all the same essential skills and knowledge as our well-established undergraduate programme, whilst adding the additional challenges of enhanced knowledge synthesis and primary research to produce academic clinicians equipped to lead and develop the profession.
The Department of Kinesiology offers a master of science degree. Students may emphasize exercise physiology/pathophysiology, or public health physical activity. Students entering the Kinesiology graduate program must satisfy a minimum number of undergraduate competencies. These competencies are often satisfied with an undergraduate degree in kinesiology. Students without an undergraduate degree in kinesiology may be required to complete additional undergraduate coursework.
The combined B.S./M.S. program will provide exceptional undergraduates with the opportunity to obtain both a Bachelor of Science and a Master of Science in Kinesiology in 5 years, a shorter time than typically required to earn a B.S. plus M.S. if both degrees are pursued separately. This program has thesis and coursework formats.
The programme is designed to introduce students to all aspects of human anatomy.
The M.S. and Ph.D. programs in Kinesiology and Applied Physiology are interdisciplinary in nature and emphasize fundamental principles derived from the basic sciences that have contributed to the development of our field. Current faculty provide expertise in physiology, nutrition, metabolism, psychophysiology, and endocrinology. Existing ties to outstanding programs at Rutgers (i.e., Nutritional Sciences, Endocrinology and Animal Biosciences, Psychology, and Physiology and Integrative Biology, the Cancer Institute of New Jersey, and the Medical School) provide a unique foundation for the education and training of the next generation of scientists in the area of Kinesiology.
The objective of the Master of Business in Science with a concentration in Kinesiology and Applied Physiology is to educate students about the systemic adaptations and responses to exercise and implications for application of these principles to the health, fitness, biotechnological, nutraceutical, supplement, and wellness industries. Students will be taught about hormonal, biochemical, metabolic, cardiovascular, musculoskeletal, and psychological responses to exercise, exercise testing and prescription principles, and application of physical activity to an overall beneficial wellness profile. In order to prepare students to work in the various related health and fitness industries, such as supplement and nutraceutical development, fitness management and wellness program implementation, corporate fitness, personal training, and health/fitness biotechnology development, students will also be taught about management and planning, teamwork and communication, and proper financial decisions.
