The Master of Exercise Science provides an advanced understanding of various sub-disciplines that are informed by the latest research developments and contemporary professional practice. These sub-disciplines studies may include: clinical, sport and occupational biomechanics; exercise physiology; motor learning and control; sport, exercise, health and coaching psychology; physical activity promotion; and sport and recreation marketing and management. In addition to learning cognitive skills, several units involve advanced technical and measurement skills developed through tutorials and laboratories. Most units offer opportunities for students to plan, prepare and conduct small research projects, and then analyse these data and report findings in both written and oral formats. Skills in literature searching, synthesising the results of these published papers and comparing one's own data within this context are embedded in many units of study.
The course consists of units to a total value of 96 points which must include course core units and specialisation units.
