The philosophy underlying this course is to build on the foundation course and to provide an advanced knowledge base that is important for a myriad of specialised areas of interest such as movement education, health education, fitness, physical therapy, rehabilitation and indeed medicine. In response to this philosophy, this course provides the student with advanced knowledge of the relationships between mechanics of movement, movement control and psychological skills training for performance to various levels of activity and exercise. The key elements within these sub-disciplines are explored to provide skills training in the principles on which movement is based.
Students completing this course will engage in a variety of physical activities as part of lab experiences and class exercises. The opportunity will be provided in the assessment items for students to specialise within certain discipline areas and undertake tasks of particular interest.
