Sport psychologists work with athletes at all levels. Students in this concentration take courses that emphasize functionality of the body, thought processes, coping styles, and communication of not only individual athletes but as it pertains to teams as well. Other areas of emphasis also include rehabilitation and mental health counseling for issues specific to athletes.
A degree in Sports Psychology can launch students into entry level career paths such as:
- Public School Athletic Programs
- Community outreach programs
- Life Coach
- Performance coaching and training
