Degree Summary The course is designed to provide an in-depth understanding of the science, evidence and key principles underpinning sport, exercise and physical activity for health, as well as possible risks such as injuries. The course teaches all relevant anatomy and physiology relating to the human body systems, how the systems respond to cardiorespiratory and muscle training, and how to prescribe appropriate physical activity for disease, health and high performance sport. Students will develop clinical assessment skills for exercise prescription, as well as basic injury assessment and management principles.
