Course summary

This course combines science, social science and public health. Through learning about how the human body works, you will understand the impact that physical activity, diet and other lifestyle choices have on health and wellbeing.

This degree has three core themes running throughout the course:

  • Exercise Science provides a fundamental, interdisciplinary understanding of human function
  • Behavioural Medicine explores how we can use the principles of exercise science to promote health, or treat and prevent disease
  • Public Health investigates the determinants of population health, focusing particularly on the role of physical activity and lifestyle in the health of a population

Through these core themes you will apply your knowledge to health and exercise settings and understand their relevance in current practice.
