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).
