The study of sport and outdoor recreation is tailor-made for people who want to develop their knowledge and passion for sport and outdoor recreation, and who have an interest in the relationship between physical activity, recreation and leisure, health and wellbeing, sustainability, leadership and education, and sports and movement studies. Students combine in-depth academic study with exciting teaching placements and fieldwork programs. Students undertake analysis of the theories of sport and outdoor recreation plus complete a sequence in another discipline selected from a range of business, science, arts and education subjects.

Professional placements are conducted in coaching and instruction, leadership and programming, and sport education. Fieldwork placements in various sport and outdoor education settings focus on the employment and training needs of those employed in the expanding sport and outdoor recreation industries. Both the classroom and fieldwork activities take advantage of Monash's dedicated Health and Wellbeing Precinct based at the Peninsula campus, with great sporting and outdoor facilities available on or near the campus.
