About This Program

The Sport, Exercise and Performance Psychology minor provides students, athletes and those preparing for careers in coaching, performing arts, sport practitioners and sport administrators with the knowledge of psychological theory and skills development to enhance human behavior in sport and exercise settings and artistic performance. The minor explores social-psychological concepts such as motivation, self-confidence, concentration, anxiety or burnout, and how these concepts can influence a sport environment (e.g., losing focus under pressure or self-doubt during a game), and the performing and creative artistic domain (e.g., lifestyle stresses, self-esteem or confidence.) Students are prepared to work in a wide-range of sport-related fields or to further their education in their chosen careers by continuing to a graduate program and certification.
