Course description

CAO CODE: LM089 The Bachelor of Science in Sport and Exercise Sciences is a four-year programme which includes an eight-month period of Cooperative Education in relevant work placements during the third year. The first year of the course is viewed as a foundation year in which a sound understanding of basic mathematics, physics, anatomy, systems physiology and psychology is gained, leading to an introduction to each of the core disciplines of exercise physiology, biomechanics and psychology. A deeper and more detailed study of these core disciplines will take place in years 2, 3 and 4. Laboratory experience is an integral part of each of these core areas of study where students test concepts and theories and acquire laboratory and research skills.
