Course overview

Advance your knowledge of exercise and sports science by undertaking an honours degree at Deakin.

Designed for students with a strong undergraduate academic record, the honours year combines coursework and an original piece of research under the guidance of a supervisor. You will gain an understanding of research methods and design as well as experience in project planning and implementation.

Graduates may apply to enter masters and PhD by research programs.

Examples of previous honours research pieces include:

  • How does physical activity in childhood improve the adult heart?
  • Can we monitor firefighters fatigue on the job in the same way we monitor our athletes?
  • Influence of game characteristics on decision making in AFL umpires
