The Research degrees are designed to develop a strong theoretical foundation and practical understanding in the exercise sciences. Practical experiences include laboratory skill development in preparation to engaging in the scientific process, including several extended research projects which are submitted as a thesis. Emphasis is placed on assisting students to extend their research efforts into conference presentations, and manuscript preparation for peer-review.
-Access units from the taught Master's in Sport to broaden your learning experience -Opportunity to undertake independent research
The benefits of a research degree include: entry level exercise science positions (ranging from jobs in an academic environment, clinical/health settings, to coaching opportunities); increased marketability for funded PhD positions; opportunities in industry (research and development) and other areas within the public and private health sectors; and possibilities in the fitness industry.
