With fundamentals in psychology, biomechanics, exercise physiology and motor control, our exercise and sports science degree will help you  understand the relationship between anatomy, physiology and nutrition.

Together with a solid understanding of psychology and biomechanics, you won’t just be able to understand the theory behind these relationships — an exercise science degree will help you put your learning into practice. 

By the time you graduate, you have the skills to be able to choose from a wide range of careers that will help people achieve goals they never thought possible, including sports education, community health, and more.
