The Bachelor of Physical Activity and Health 2754 focuses on the roles and benefits of physical activity, exercise and healthy lifestyles. The degree provides a strong academic base in the foundations of health 2754, into exercise promotion, prescription and delivery, and for physical activity across the lifespan. It focuses on the practical skills required to become leaders in Outdoor Education, HPE Teaching, Coaching and Health Promotion professions. The skills are developed while studying the promotion, maintenance and enhancement of health, physical activity and sport related behaviours. They are further explored in the contexts of community health, personal well-being, leadership in outdoor education and sports performance. Students can choose from a range of electives in the specialised areas of physical education, leadership in outdoor education, sports coaching, and/or health and health promotion. Opportunities for industry-relevant practicum experience are embedded in the degree. The course aims to produce graduates with a strong academic base in health 2754 disciplines related to physical activity and exercise, with the capacity to apply knowledge and skills in an ethical, fair and respectful manner. From year one, students are introduced to physical activity and exercise engagement, health promotion, and are given a foundation in health 2754 as it relates to human function and performance. This includes fundamental concepts in anatomy, physiology, and human growth and development. Students also commence elective studies in areas of academic or vocational interest.
