Through studying Human Movement Studies (HMS), students develop an understanding of the fundamental concepts and principles underpinning their learning of movement sequences and specialized movement skills. Students investigate how they can enhance movement across physical activities through physical and mental training. Students integrate theory topics of functional anatomy, biomechanics, sports psychology, energy systems and ethics in sport to develop a depth of understanding of how athletic performance can be influenced and enhanced.
Human Movement Studies is a year long elective suited to students who are interested in a pathway that leads to Senior Physical Education or Sport and Recreation. The learning will provide a solid basis of knowledge which will be further extended in the senior Physical Education course, as well as provide foundation knowledge for a variety of allied health and fitness vocational education qualifications.
