The Graduate Diploma of Applied Sport Science is designed for busy professionals looking to progress their career in the sport science industry. You can study while you work and complete your degree online in just 1 year (full time). The course prepares you for both the technical and managerial aspects of high performance sport. Build specialised skills in sport science, performance analysis and strength and conditioning; and complement these skills by boosting your management capabilities through studies in leadership, culture development and continuous improvement. These management skills don't just make you more employable, they give you a recipe for team success and allow you to develop your support staff, as well as your athletes. The curriculum is underpinned by science and research - just one of the reasons why Deakin has been the number one sport science school in Australia for three years running*. You'll graduate with the ability to critically evaluate and apply research to make confident, evidence-based decisions in your role. Better still, you'll have direct access to academics with expertise in a broad range of sport science fields. This includes specialist researchers within Deakin's multidisciplinary Centre for Sport Research (CSR) and Institute for Physical Activity and Nutrition (IPAN). Draw on their professional experiences when solving complex sport science problems and leverage their industry connections to start forming your own.
