Our Musculoskeletal Sport Science and Health MSc will provide you with knowledge of the scientific concepts and procedures underpinning sport and exercise-related musculoskeletal function, measurement, injury and treatment.
The programme allows you to adopt a multidisciplinary approach to the scientific study of sport and exercise related musculoskeletal health and performance including anatomy, physiology, biomechanics, bioengineering and kinesiology.
You will also have the opportunity to carry out in-depth and critical research in selected areas of interest.
The Musculoskeletal Sport Science and Health programme is delivered in connection with the National Centre for Sport and Exercise Medicine – East Midlands (NCSEM-EM), an Olympic legacy funded project aimed at improving the health and wellbeing of the nation. Combining the state-of-the-art facilitates of the NCSEM-EM with the unparalleled sport environment at Loughborough provides a unique postgraduate learning experience for the scientific study of sport and exercise-related musculoskeletal health and performance.
The NCSEM-EM has five key themes that cover research, education and clinical activity: physical activity in disease prevention; exercise in chronic disease; sports injuries and musculoskeletal health; mental health and wellbeing, and performance health.
Core study areas include orthopaedic sports biomechanics; neuromuscular function; physiology of endurance performance; risk and recovery of sport injury; research methods for sport and exercise; basic science and regenerative therapy; emerging technologies for health and wellbeing; motion analysis of human movement; developing computer models for sports biomechanics; sports injury, and a research project.
