Gain a theoretical understanding of sport from philosophical, psychological, sociological, and physiological viewpoints in the sport and exercise psychology graduate concentration. The synergy created in this unique area of study provides graduates with the tools and knowledge needed to help the physically active maximize their performance.

You’ll take courses in research methods and statistics to prepare you to complete your thesis, which will be based on a research problem you’ve selected related to your personal and professional interests in sport and exercise psychology. Other courses you’ll take will explore sport sociology, anxiety, attentional focus, leadership, applied sport psychology, motivation, achievement, sport personology, and social and cultural manifestations of sport.

Should I study athletic counseling or sport and exercise psychology?
