Bachelor of High Performance Sport (Honours)

Australian Catholic University (ACU)

This is a one-year degree or equivalent part time study, taught in English, for high-achieving students who have already completed a relevant Bachelor degree. Students initially develop an understanding of ethical research design, practice and analysis within a high performance research setting. This knowledge is then incorporated into an original and independent research project conducted under the supervision of academic staff and/or industry professionals with expertise in the field. Bachelor of High Performance Sport (Honours) students will explore and analyse a specialist area of human performance, sports analysis or strength and conditioning from both a theoretical and professional perspective, develop research skills, conduct a creative and analytical study in the form of a thesis, prepare for higher degree studies at the Masters and Doctoral level.
