Description

Advertisement

This modular programme aims to produce postgraduate students with a sound knowledge of both the practical and theoretical aspects of sport psychology, as well as the necessary skills to undertake individual and collaborative research. All students take three specialist subject modules and a core module in research skills. To complete the Master's programme, students undertake an individual research project.

Sport Psychology at UEL
Studying an MSc in Sport Psychology at UEL gives students a unique opportunity. The programme content enables students to develop in an array of different ways while maintaining the core concepts of sport psychology theory to application. On entry to the programme students will have different requirements for their development. The MSc in Sport Psychology at UEL will enable each student to meet these requirements through its flexible nature.

Contents

Programme structure
* One year full time or two years part time for MSc and PG Diploma.
* One year part time for PG Certificate.
* Part time students study Contemporary Theories in Sport Psychology and Research Methods and Statistics in year 1 and Advanced Applied Sport Psychology and an optional M level module in year 2. The project is carried out mainly in year 2, but may be started in year 1.
* Taught modules are delivered in a semesterised system, with semesters running from September to January and February to June. The research projects will run through the summer period.

Learning environment
* Learning is encouraged through participation in a wide variety of activities including lectures, seminars, workshops, laboratory-based practicals, and web-based learning.
* In addition all students are expected to read extensively in their own time. Much of this reading will be directed.
* Success at university depends on developing your ability to study independently using library resources, Computer-assisted learning (CAL), handouts and web-based study activities.
* These skills are reinforced in modules in the first semester. These enable us to assess your independent learning needs at university, and also help to develop those transferable skills so important in working life. The skills with which you start the programme may vary considerably between individuals, so your personal tutor will direct your skills development work on an individual basis.

Assessment
* Students are assessed in practical work and theory.
* The Research Skills module is assessed by coursework involving a variety of forms of presentation.
* The Research Project is assessed mainly by the final written report, with contributions from a poster presentation and portfolio.
* The pass mark for all modules is 50%

Relevance to work/profession
* The curriculum is tailored to current demand in this field.
* Emphasis is placed on progression from an understanding of theory to an application of that theory.
* Part-time students in relevant employment may be permitted to carry out research projects at their place of work.
