Our combined Bachelor of Sport and Exercise Science and Bachelor of Science (Psychology) offers a program that will set you up with the skills and knowledge of two complementary disciplines.

You will develop job-ready skills in analysis, writing, research, communication, and teamwork, and competency in prescribing exercise, assessing and improving the movement of athletes and the general population. In your third year you will have the opportunity to learn hands-on and apply your knowledge and skills in an industry placement. From this combined degree, you can progress through further study to become a registered Sport and Exercise Psychologist.
