Course sub-headings

Course overview

Deakin's Bachelor of Exercise and Sport Science/Bachelor of Business (Sport Management) is designed for students who wish to gain expertise in both exercise and sport science and business (sport management). Graduates of this combined course will be equipped to provide enhanced professional leadership in the field and make a marked impact on the continued development of the Australian sporting industry.

The exercise and sport science aspect of the course will equip you with the necessary skills, understanding and attitudes to pursue a professional career in the exercise and sport fields. The core units provide an understanding of the sciences underpinning both competitive sport and recreational physical activity, and the relationship between physical activity and health. You can further your knowledge and explore other study areas of interest by choosing elective units in physiology, metabolism, behaviour, movement and physical activity. The business (sport management) component provides you with a solid foundation in business studies, and the unique knowledge and specialist skills required by sport managers in Australian organisations, as identified within the industry.


Work-Integrated Learning

This combined course features extensive practical experience in exercise and sport science so you can start your career before you graduate with hands-on work placement experience.

You have the opportunity to undertake hands-on experience in a variety of sporting, exercise or health environments. These may vary from local, state or national sporting organisations and professional sporting clubs; state and national institutes of sport; as well as health, fitness and rehabilitation providers. The roles can involve coaching, sport science, sports administration, sport management, rehabilitation and fitness. Many graduates have been offered work based on their excellent fieldwork performance.
