The Bachelor of Exercise and Sport Science addresses both sport and health aspects in its comprehensive approach to the study of exercise. The first year of the degree provides an introduction to exercise and sport science and builds a strong foundation with a focus on general and biological sciences. In the second and third year, you will specialise in exercise and sport science working through a series of specific courses including:

  • clinical exercise testing and prescription
  • exercise physiology
  • exercise testing and prescription
  • growth, development and ageing
  • motor control and learning
  • sport and exercise psychology
  • sports nutrition
  • biomechanics

When you study the Bachelor of Exercise and Sport Science, you can also choose from a number of relevant elective courses that complement the exercise and sport science degree, such as:

  • health promotion
  • psychology
  • nutrition
  • pharmacology
  • statistics
  • management
  • physical education
  • marketing
  • entrepreneurship and innovation
  • sports management

Advanced study options

With increasing competition in all sectors of employment, students who graduate with an Honours degree have a distinct advantage. It is often considered by employers as an added skill and has been used by previous graduates to pursue higher positions and salaries. As part of this degree you will develop and carry out research on a topic of interest, potentially leading to further academic study such as a research degree.

Offered through the Faculty of Science, the Exercise and Sport Science Honours degree consists of one additional year of study and development of a research thesis.

Research within exercise and sport science is diverse and wide-ranging, encompassing areas such as exercise physiology and biomechanics. Our focus ranges from research on the general population through to elite athletes.

Examples of current research interests include:

  • sport technology applications
  • sports injury mechanics
  • speed and agility in sport
  • applied strength and conditioning
  • applied exercise physiology
  • mental fatigue and performance
  • clinical exercise science

The Bachelor of Exercise and Sport Science (Honours) is only offered at the Central Coast campus at Ourimbah.
