Why study the Bachelor of Exercise and Nutrition Sciences (Honours)?

The Bachelor of Exercise and Nutrition Sciences (Honours) allows students with a generalist background in the exercise sciences and nutrition sciences to develop knowledge and core skills in theory and research.

The program is based on a combination of coursework and a research project in the chosen field of study. Its objective is to produce graduates who will be able to think clearly, flexibly and critically, and be able to weigh up evidence and arguments and make rational choices.

A honours research project allows students to demonstrate their advanced academic capability and culminates in the completion of an honours thesis. Students have the opportunity to pursue their independent research project in a range of fields such as human movement sciences (e.g. biomechanics, motor control, exercise physiology, sport and exercise psychology) and nutrition (e.g. food science, food and society, nutrition and disease).

Students will acquire skills which will enable them to work without close supervision in a research environment in industry or government, or to proceed to a research higher degree at the Master of Philosophy (MPhil) and Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) level.
