The BA Physical Education degree provides a multi-disciplinary applied degree in physical education, integrating theoretical and practical knowledge relevant to employment opportunities. The degree balances a compulsory core with optional modules giving scope for students to tailor their degree programme to their own personal and/or future employment interests.
Our teaching programme draws on contemporary research, alongside giving you the opportunity to experience a range of physical education and physical activity settings. These include schools, health and fitness industries and the youth and voluntary sectors. We allow you to take ownership of your development, as we have a strong emphasis on the individual as the facilitator of their learning. We use an inter-disciplinary approach to teaching, allowing you to explore the context and application of various key disciplines and how they relate to physical education, from the physiological through to the psychological sociological and pedagogical.
