The Sports, Exercise and Health Science course incorporates the disciplines of anatomy and physiology, biomechanics, psychology and nutrition which are studied in the context of sport, exercise and health. A combination of syllabus content and experimental work provides the opportunity for students to acquire the knowledge and understanding necessary to apply scientific principles and analyse human performance. Students explore the concepts, theories, models and techniques that underpin each subject area and through these develop their understanding of the scientific method.
SEHS students participate in a compulsory group 4 project. This collaborative and interdisciplinary exercise provides an opportunity for students to explore scientific solutions to global questions.
A minimum of 150 timetabled hours is expected to be devoted to Sports Exercise and Health Science.
