, FL,
Sport, Exercise, and Performance Psychology (SEPP) was recently named a “Hot Career” by the American Psychological Association (APA), due to the increased need to address performance in sport and other areas such as health, well-being, and the corporate world. 


Our program will provide you with the basis for understanding the thought processes and attitudes of athletes and individuals involved in sport, exercise, and non-sport performance activities. With this understanding, you can then learn to help others improve their performance and/or psychological well-being.

Graduates of the program will be prepared for a range of truly exciting careers and opportunities including:

  • Mental Performance Coaching which, involves working alongside individual performers (for example, athletes, coaches, exercisers, and non-sport performers) to enhance their performance using skills such as imagery, self-talk, and anxiety management as well as groups (for example, sports teams) to enhance their cohesion and ability to perform effectively together.
  • Coaching or assisting at the high-school, university or professional sports level.
  • Preparation for further education in counseling or clinical psychology.
  • Preparation for doctoral study, with subsequent plans to research or teach at the university level.
  • Starting a business by combining the Sport, Exercise, and Performance Psychology degree with a dual master’s degree in Business Administration with the School of Business
