Overview

For students with an interest in pursuing a career in the sport field, this new coursework-based master’s degree allows students to specialise or broaden their expertise.

Courses will draw on sport science research, as well as experts in the field from within and outside UC, to provide students with historically and culturally grounded knowledge and skills. Students will have flexibility to choose courses in biomechanics, exercise physiology, sport psychology, sport nutrition, strength and conditioning and performance analysis.

This one-year master’s degree could lead to a career in high performance sport, or allow established professionals to upskill and update their sport science knowledge.
