Course Overview

This programme is designed to cover the application of scientific principles on three branches of science – biomechanics, physiology and interdisciplinary approaches. The sports science area largely offers expert scientific backup for top sport training and performance, while exercise science has a central role in physical programmes aimed at improving general health. The qualified sport and exercise scientist can expect to have a broad technical and physiological knowledge, and stands to benefit from current developments within the field offering a professional status that is recognised worldwide. This programme covers a broad, multidisciplinary study of sport and exercise science. Students will be introduced the sports concepts and practices, principles of coaching, health and wellness, and various games in sports. Students will develop knowledge and understanding of how scientific methods can be used to examine sport and exercise activities in subjects such as anatomy and physiology, sports psychology, sport biomechanics as well as motor learning and development. Other topics include sports management, maintenance of sport facilities, sports injuries, legal and ethical issues in sports, and sports nutrition.
