Our combined Bachelor of Sport and Exercise Science and Bachelor of Science (Psychology) offers a program that will set you up with the skills and knowledge of two complementary disciplines.
Throughout this course you will build your skills and knowledge in exercise physiology, biomechanics, motor control and sport and exercise psychology, along with the broad theoretical and practical knowledge of psychology.
You will develop job-ready skills in analysis, writing, research, communication, and teamwork, and competency in prescribing exercise, assessing and improving the movement of athletes and the general population.
In your third year you will have the opportunity to learn hands-on and apply your knowledge and skills in an industry placement.
From this combined degree, you can progress through further study to become a registered Sport and Exercise Psychologist.
This course provides the foundations for a professional career as a Psychologist, but also offers a range of additional career options including health, and rehabilitation, community work, marketing, counselling, human resources, and research, to name just a few.
Areas of employment for graduates of this degree include Sports Teams, Gymnasiums, Peak Sports Bodies, Health Promotion and Local Government.
