Applied sport science (Bachelor of Exercise and Sport Science)



In the Applied Sport Science major, students will learn to apply scientific thinking and methods to solve problems and generate insights in sport. This major is suitable for those who aspire to work as sport scientists in real sporting settings (e.g., community sport, junior sport, and high performance sport).

Completing this sequence will help students prepare to apply for postgraduate sport science scholarships and internships, such as those offered by the AIS, VIS, and AFL clubs. The sequence also provides a platform for progression to postgraduate study options, such as Deakin’s Master of Applied Sport Science, Honours and other research opportunities.
