M.A. in Counseling Psychology: Sport and Health Specialization
This program prepares graduates to address individual and systemic issues that affect sport performance and health. These two areas overlap considerably in the types of interventions used to produce positive changes (e.g., goal setting and self-monitoring to improve consistency of practicing or to lose weight). Both sport and health goals also share the influence of various social and community factors (e.g., coaches, family members, culture, access to facilities). Therefore, this unique program provides training and understanding of assessment, intervention and analysis of systems that will allow graduates to work within communities, schools and professional organizations to address the diverse needs of people of a wide variety of ages, health issues and athletic accomplishments. The curriculum prepares students to consider the political, social and structural influences that impact health and that affect athletes (e.g., coaches, athletic directors, parents, teachers, medical professionals). Larger issues related to media marketing and development through the lifespan are also integrated into the curriculum.
