The Bachelor of Applied Science (Exercise and Sport Science) develops the skills to integrate exercise and physical activity with disease prevention and the promotion of good health, rehabilitation, nutrition and sports performance.
Students will have the opportunity to include elective units throughout their degree or to take a major or minor sequence from another discipline area within the University to complement their major in exercise science.
As an exercise and sport science student, you will learn how to integrate exercise and physical activity with health, sports performance and disease prevention. Exercise scientists help people recover from injury, maximise the performance of elite athletes, promote healthy ageing and generally improve people's health and wellbeing.
During this three year degree, your studies will cover all aspects of exercise and sport science, including musculoskeletal anatomy, body systems, muscle mechanics and training, neuroscience, nutrition, exercise testing and prescription, and motor control and learning.
This program incorporates significant clinical and professional fieldwork opportunities, providing hands-on experience with real clients in a supervised industry placement.
