Tom tells us why he chose to study exercise sport science with UNE.
The Bachelor of Exercise and Sports Science through the University of New England (UNE) uses a multidisciplinary approach to help students develop an understanding of all aspects of sport science, exercise and health.
Core units of study include the structure, function and behaviour of the body followed by advanced study into acute and chronic psychological and psychological responses to exercise.
In the area of movement analysis, students will develop analytical, technical and professional skills as well as the ability to assess health and fitness and exercise training. Students will also be equipped with the skills to design and implement exercise intervention programs for disease prevention and to improve athletic performance.
UNE is currently seeking accreditation with Exercise and Sports Science Australia (ESSA) for this course.
