Purpose

The goal of the Psychology of Sport and Exercise minor is to enhance knowledge in the field of psychology as it pertains to sport and exercise performance.  The objective of the minor is to provide concepts of psychology and exercise as they relate to behavioral theories, physiological processes, social psychology of sport and exercise and psychological modalities related to performance in a sport and exercise environment.  

This minor will be valuable to students interested in working in health & healthcare professions (e.g., coach, athletic trainer, educator, health behavior coach, etc.) because data shows that understanding the psychology involved in sport and exercise is critical to providing quality whole-body care and enhancing performance when working with potential clients, patients, and athletes. 

Completing this minor in Psychology of Sport and Exercise will also prepare students that are interested in obtaining a graduate degree in psychology and enhance their ability to get a job without a graduate degree by being marketable as having knowledge of theoretical framework and modalities in enhancing the well-being of clients in their health & healthcare profession.
