Physical Education

  • Physical Education



The Physical Education major is one of five majors of the Bachelor of Sport Coaching degree (BSpC), which is a unique blend of practical application and theory that will immerse students in the sociology, science, theory and practice of sport and sport coaching.

Graduates will develop a valuable set of skills including knowledge of human movement, health and physical activity, awareness of the holistic nature of health and movement, interpretive and analytical thinking, leadership, organisational and interpersonal skills.

It is a popular major for students wishing to follow a recognised pathway to teaching, in particular physical education and health teaching. It supports and informs learning and skill development in the classroom. There is the option to include an additional teaching subject such as mathematics or science, when combined with a graduate teaching qualification.
