The Exercise and Sport Science major is ideal for you if you want a broad knowledge base in sport, coupled with practical, applied skills that will make you a sought-after employee in the health and fitness world.
What is it Like?
Expand your sports knowledge
With the Exercise and Sport Science major, you’ll study a broad range of subjects relating to sport and exercise like biomechanics, exercise physiology and training science. Together, this foundation helps you understand how to enhance sport performance and improve health.
Do your own research
Conduct your own sport performance investigation from finding the topic right through to selecting subjects, collecting data, analysing results, reporting and presenting. Students have done projects such as examining how caffeine affects performance, the connection between hydration and attention, and how things like heat and dietary interventions affect performance.
Get the skills you need for a great career
You will learn theoretical material in lectures, and apply your new-found knowledge in laboratory or practical classes in a range of subjects relating to sport and exercise. You will develop critical thinking, problem-solving and communication skills relevant to this energy-fuelled and constantly progressing field. The main applications are sports performance, and the use of exercise to promote fitness and health.
You can combine exercise and sport science with other sport programmes such as sport management and coaching, exercise prescription and training, or science programmes such as physiology and human nutrition.
Some of the topics taught in exercise and sport science courses include:
Massey’s exercise and sports science graduates have an excellent reputation throughout the sporting industry and are sought after in a wide range of areas including teaching, coaching, sports, fitness and health.
Some examples are:
If you take the Bachelor of Business Studies/Bachelor of Science conjoint programme, you will have excellent potential to develop business opportunities in the sports area.
Students must have successful completion of a qualification equivalent to the New Zealand Year 13 - NCEA Level 3 University Entrance.
It is strongly recommended (but not compulsory) that students beginning their study in exercise and sport science should have a sound background in at least two of the following subjects: biology, chemistry, physics or mathematics at NCEA Level 3 (or equivalent).
