Sports Studies / Extended

Have you ever wondered if sport contributes more to society than health and fitness? The Sports Studies major takes a look at sport, activity and leisure from sociological, historical, economic and psychological perspectives. As a student in the Sports Studies major you'll develop a "big picture" understanding of the role and importance of sport, including how different social factors influence exercise motivation and participation, the history of sport, and the relationship between sport and health. The major also offers a range of courses about the human body and its nervous, sensory and muscular systems, which are taught through the School of Human Movement and Nutrition Sciences.

Career outcomes

Graduates of the Sports Studies major typically undertake a diverse range of roles in social policy, journalism, management, PR and marketing, public health, education, and psychology. Many graduates find leadership positions with state and national sporting teams, the media, and international sporting organisations.
