Physical education is a discipline that covers the teaching and provision of sports and exercise in schools and other education settings. A cross-discipline subject, physical education studies will develop your knowledge and skills in both teaching and education, and sports and coaching. These skills will mean that you are able to pursue a career of your choice, either within education or outside education.
A postgraduate degree in physical education will allow you to build on the knowledge you gained at undergraduate level. You will also be able to further develop your practical skills. Your modules will cover more complex and specialist areas of sport and physical education. These may include the psychology of physical education, contemporary issues in physical education, diversity and social justice within sports, and acquiring movement skills.
Your degree will be delivered through lectures and seminars, as well as practical sessions. It is likely that you will have the chance to take part in a placement, allowing you to gain more advanced and hands-on work experience.
