The Bachelor of Exercise Science and Psychological Science provides a scientific understanding of the structure and function of the human body as it relates to movement, the interrelationships between health and disease, and the psychological bases of physical activity.
A substantial range of career trajectories exists for graduates of this combined program. Many psychology graduates do not continue to work as clinical psychologists, however, with an advanced knowledge of exercise science in conjunction with psychological studies, graduates are well positioned to enter other careers with therapeutic connections to sport and exercise. This may be in the area of professional athlete counselling or perhaps situated outside of professional sports within schools and colleges.
Other career pathways include health management and guidance with relation to behaviour change and rehabilitation management following injury.
Students complete core units in exercise science as well as core units in psychological science. A range of elective subjects is also available.
