Bachelor of Pre-Medicine, Science and Health (Exercise Science) | 2017
The Exercise Science major provides an overview of the acute and chronic effects of physical activity and exercise on human performance, health, and wellbeing. The major provides an introduction to the core disciplines of exercise physiology, biomechanics and motor control, with foundation studies undertaken in biology, chemistry, anatomy, physiology, and human growth and nutrition. Lectures, tutorials, and hands-on practical sessions underlie the teaching approach across the major. Skills in the undertaking of research, data gathering and interpretation will be developed, with 70 hours of placement/work experience obtained within the exercise science setting. This major is a pathway to Honours and postgraduate research, and graduate entry medicine. Additional study is required for entry into graduate entry allied health programs such as exercise physiology and physiotherapy.
Major Learning Outcomes
Students graduating from a major in Exercise Science will be able to:
- Illustrate a comprehensive and coherent knowledge in the principles and concepts associated with exercise science.
- Indicate how exercise science knowledge and skills can be applied in professional practice and scholarship.
The schedule for students undertaking the Exercise Science major for the Bachelor of Pre-Medicine, Science and Health for 2nd and 3rd year, including core and major subjects is detailed below.
