Study type Taught


Our Physical Activity, Health, and Society programme examines the inequalities across physical activity, health and society. Our world-leading academics deliver the programme, offering a cutting-edge curriculum and building on our collaborative expertise in physical activity and sport inequalities and associated research methods.

The programme explores the vital role of physical activity in society, from policy and public health to the spaces and places which enhance, shape and curtail movement.

You'll benefit from working with experts in our Department of Sport and Exercise Sciences (World Top 100, QS World University Rankings by Subject 2022), the Department of Anthropology and across the wider University.

We’ve developed this programme to allow flexibility and choice together with academic rigour and coherence. Along with a dissertation, you’ll undertake three compulsory modules which will critically examine key challenges associated with physical activity to improve health and wellbeing, tackle health inequalities and social injustice.
