Analytical, technical and professional skills are developed in the areas of movement analysis, health and fitness assessment and exercise training for health and performance
Graduates from this course can be employed in a range of fields including health and physical activity promotion, sports science, health and fitness (personal trainer, strength and conditioning coach, health consultant/educator), clinical measurements (cardiac/respiratory/sleep technician) and postgraduate research/coursework in related disciplines.
The knowledge and skills relevant to exercise and sport related fields will be taught, assessed and practised within the program starting with the foundations in first year, followed by more specific and specialised coverage in the second and third year of the program. Several of the units will critically examine concepts and principles of physical activity, sport and health from a global perspective. Students will be taught and assessed on their understanding of the nature of exercise and sporting practices.
All units within the program require compentency in oral and written forms of communication. This will be taught, assessed and practised throughout the course of study.
Units throughout the degree will teach, assess and require students to apply logical, critical and creative thinking to a range of problems relevant to professional practice in exercise and sport related fields.
Fundamental to all the units in the program is the ability to source and critically evaluate exercise and sport related information. This will be taught and assessed in core units within the course.
Reflecting on social responsibility and ethical conduct, professional practice is embedded in the course content. Units will require students to address and understand how social, political, economic, ideological and cultural imperatives are constructed and act upon people in different health and sporting contexts.
Students will be taught, assessed and be given the opportunity to practise new skills and apply these skills to increasingly more complex and unexpected situations. As students progress through the course they will be able to reflect on the limitations of, and have the capacity to evaluate their current knowledge.
