With a qualification in Exercise and Sports Science, you'll help your clients improve their health and fitness, enhance physical performance and prevent and rehabilitate injury.
Making a difference
As an exercise and sports scientist, you'll be an expert in understanding how human bodies respond to exercise, and how to make a difference in the quality of life for all people.
You'll teach people to use exercise as an intervention to improve health and fitness in both healthy and physically challenged populations.
Work-integrated learning and placements
The course is integrated with health, fitness and sporting agencies within the community. This gives you a variety of options for work placement as part of your study program.
Heat training and acclimatisation
Delivered on campus in the Northern Territory and external delivery mode, you'll study the general principles of health and physical performance, specialising in tropical hot and humid conditions.
CDU is a partner in the Darwin-based National Heat Training and Acclimatisation Centre and mainstream sports in the Northern Territory.
