About this course

Psychology and exercise science share a common goal of  assisting individuals and groups to optimise their functioning and performance,  and the combined knowledge of these two disciplines will equip graduates of  this double degree to provide high quality services to their clients. Exercise  scientists working with clinical populations and high performance athletes will  benefit from the knowledge and skills gained from many core topics within  psychology, including motivation, emotion, individual differences,  psychological disorders, and decision making. ACU's undergraduate psychology programs help students to  acquire knowledge, assimilate conceptual understandings and develop skills of  application that are valuable to the enhancement of human functioning in a  broad range of professional settings. Graduates of the Bachelor of  Psychological Science will complete a sequence in psychology that is accredited  by the Australian Psychology Accreditation Council (APAC). This sequence will  ensure graduates acquire an advanced understanding of human behaviour, as well  as highly regarded employability skills, including:critical analysis and rational thinking;ethical decision making;scientific thinking and research capabilities;measurement and analysis of data;problem solving skills;written and verbal communication;interpersonal skills, including foundational  counselling skills; andlife-long  learning skills. The Bachelor of Exercise and Sports Science progresses  students from foundation knowledge, understanding and skills in human anatomy,  physiology and the sub-disciplines of Exercise Science, into their application  in movement, exercise and sporting contexts, such as exercise testing,  prescription and delivery. Students are then progressed into authentic learning  experiences in which they can integrate their evidence-based learnings and  scope of practice in applied, industry-based settings. This professional  practice provides students with the opportunity to reflect upon their  transition from learning to practitioner.
