The Master of Exercise Science (thesis and coursework) will expose you to advanced level units within the various sub-disciplines that are informed by the latest research developments and contemporary professional practice. As part of this learning, you will acquire knowledge of the process and conduct research in the biological and behavioural sciences as this applies to the field of Exercise Science.
In addition to the learning of cognitive and research skills involved in these advanced level units, several units involve learning of advanced technical and measurement skills through tutorials and laboratories. Most core and elective units for this degree offer, at the graduate level, opportunities for you to plan, prepare and conduct small research projects, and then analyse these data and report findings in both written and oral formats. For the thesis component, skills in literature searching, synthesising the results of these published papers and comparing one's own data within this context are embedded.
