Majoring in Sport Psychology involves the study of the psychological and mental factors that influence and are influenced by participation and performance in sport, exercise and physical activity. You’ll learn core concepts in psychology, sport theory, and kinesiology and how they intersect with each other. What are the psychological benefits of sports? What is the role of motivation in physical training? How can concentration enhance performance? You’ll gain knowledge and skills that are important for any career in sport psychology as you take 48 credit hours towards a Bachelor of Arts degree.
You'll also have real opportunities to learn beyond the classroom via Concordia Health Alliance for Majors in Physical Education & Kinesiology (CHAMP) Club activities; participation in conferences, workshops, seminars, and clinics locally and nationally; and internship opportunities. Because we design our sport psychology program to be responsive to the exact needs of the marketplace, it will be a relevant major if you’re considering a career in settings such as injury rehabilitation, fitness/wellness centers, coaching, rehabilitation, or health and wellness education.
