The Fundamental Sciences and Research Certificate is designed for students who have interest in studying courses with a major focus on fundamental sciences and scientific research inquiry underpinning the discipline of kinesiology and physical education. These courses include fundamental knowledges in areas including physical cultural studies, exercise and sport psychology, exercise and sport physiology, systems and cellular physiology, motor behaviour and neural plasticity, exercise and orthopaedic biomechanics, and research inquiry, methods and methodologies. Students will learn about the increasingly important role of fundamental sciences and research in kinesiology and physical education in advancing knowledges and developing evidence-informed practices in the field.
