Exercise, Sports and Rehabilitation Science

Bachelor of Science (Exercise, Sports and Rehabilitation Science) - BSc(Curtin) - B-EXSPRHB

Health Sciences

Exercise science and rehabilitation professionals have a key role in maintaining individual and community health. They may work in areas related to sport and excercise programs, or in contributing to restoring people's health and assisting people with disabilities. 

What the course involves:

In the Bachelor of Science (Exercise, Sports and Rehabilitation Science), you will study a combination of theoretical and practical subjects. Your first year is interprofessional and is taken with students from other health disciplines. In your second and third years you study exercise and sports science.

This course is devoted to an intensive study of:

  • exercise and sports physiology
  • biomechanics
  • motor control
  • motor learning and skill acquisition,
  • exercise and sports psychology.

You can develop your practical skills in laboratory and field settings. Options within the course structure enable you to pursue your different interests, for example in areas such as business, education, nutrition, health promotion and psychology.

Emphasis is placed on professional development and strong interpersonal communication skills, which are attributes of client-centred practice and will help you to develop your critical thinking and problem-solving skills.

Fieldwork experience

In this course you can work with individuals, teams and other groups in assessing physical abilities, designing and implementing training programs, and in performance evaluation.
