This course will provide students with the skills and knowledge required to formulate, after consideration of relevant literature, technology and resources, a relevant research proposal in an area of exercise science. Students will be required to undertake a research process using appropriate methodology (while considering legal and ethical considerations); analyse the results; and, demonstrate the skills required to effectively communicate the findings of the study in an oral and written report. The ability to undertake an independent research project will provide the confidence and practical skills to undertake evidence based research as a normal part of professional practice and as a contribution to knowledge and practice in the area of sport and exercise. Skills will be developed to allow for the evaluation of the findings (conclusions and implications) of research studies and highlight the importance of applying latest research from relevant disciplines to ensure best professional practice. This course may provide students with the opportunity to conduct a project overseas. It may allow for some use of sport and exercise laboratories to conduct supervised research.
