This double degree offers a distinct integration of nutrition, human movement, exercise and sport, providing you with a strong theoretical, practical and industry focus. This is the only program of its type in South Australia with a core sequence of courses recognised by Exercise and Sport Science Australia (ESSA) that can lead to accreditation as an exercise scientist and accreditation with the Nutrition Society of Australia to provide nutrition advice for health and wellbeing.
We’ve designed this degree so you can build and apply your skills in the highly complementary fields of health, exercise and nutrition. With practical experience opportunities contained throughout the degree, you’ll have the opportunity to undertake cross-industry placements, study in state-of-the-art labs and facilities, and learn from teachers who are experts in their field.
Our proud teaching history of over 40 years’ experience in human movement education and research, along with our strong industry recognition in food science, also means you’ll benefit from the most knowledgeable minds. And it doesn’t stop once you graduate – once you complete your double degree, there are numerous opportunities to pursue postgraduate study in areas such as teaching, physiotherapy, occupational therapy and research.
I look forward to welcoming you on campus soon.
