Why study this course

This program brings together a comprehensive foundation of health sciences, understanding of physical activity, and skills in interacting with diverse people. Students gain the theoretical skills to analyse new challenges, and practical skills required to help people improve their health. The HPE program is known for the international standard of its facilities. Western Sydney University has invested significantly in a new gymnasium and renovated the dance and gym facilities used for HPE. The course explores challenging areas including health issues, sexuality, drugs, psychology and risk-taking behaviours, in addition to general health science including human biology, health systems, health promotion and research. This program enables students to develop wide-ranging skills, which may be applied post-graduation in a variety of contexts. The strength of this program is the development of graduates with a holistic understanding of the concepts of health and physical activity and its relationship to the other components of personal development and physical education.
