Health and Exercise Science with Professional Placement University of Bath

Undergraduate

Understand the role of physical activity and exercise on health and wellbeing. Prepare yourself for a range of careers in the health sector, whether promoting health at an individual or population level.

Health and Exercise Science combines science, social science and public health. You will develop your understanding of health determinants and investigate the impact of physical activity, diet and other lifestyle behaviours on health.

This degree has three core themes running throughout the course: Exercise Science, Behavioural Medicine and Public Health.
Exercise Science provides a fundamental interdisciplinary understanding of human function.
Behavioural Medicine explores how we can use the principles of exercise science to promote health, or treat and prevent disease.
Public Health investigates the determinants of population health, focusing particularly on the role of physical activity and lifestyle in the health of a population.

Through these core themes you will apply your knowledge to health and exercise settings and understand their relevance in current practice. Within the core themes of Exercise Science, Behavioural Medicine and Public Health, some of the topics you will cover include:
clinical and functional assessment techniques
epidemiology
exercise prescription
health technologies
nutrition
social health inequalities
sports medicine
research methods

Students taking the BSc/MSci Health and Exercise Science course will be prepared for a range of careers including public health, rehabilitation, physician’s assistant, community sports, health promotion, health policy and exercise science.
