Sport and Performance Psychology

Using positive and applied sport psychology, our sport and performance psychology programs train students in motivation, performance enhancement and the ability to maximize human potential. The SPP programs offered include: Master of Science (MS), Doctorate of Education (EdD), and a graduate certificate. These options allow students to meet their specific career goals and educational needs.

The integration of sport psychology and counseling within the curriculum offers graduates a broader professional scope of practice and a deeper engagement in the field. The counseling coursework is an essential aspect of the training needed to become a Certified Mental Performance Consultant (CMPC®) or Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC).
