Help others optimize their performance skills
Help others excel
Learn the main theoretical approaches, principles, and methods of sport and performance psychology with a Certificate in Sport and Performance Psychology. This graduate certificate program is also ideal for those who want to further their education and expertise in mental skills training and/or are working towards their Certified Mental Performance Consultant (CMPC) certification through the Association of Applied Sport Psychology (AASP). Choose from on-campus, online, or hybrid program options.
Please note: "Fully online" in our SPP programs typically means a combination of synchronous (real-time classes with a few mandatory live classes during the semester with the professor and peers) and asynchronous (students work on their own time within weekly course deadlines) components. This gives students some real-time engagement plus flexibility.
Program Mission: To educate and train students to become ethical, professional, and culturally competent practitioners who work with performers in a variety of domains. Our program is grounded in the theory and research of sport and performance psychology and offers training for practitioners to apply this education in the field. The program is committed to supporting both the professional and personal growth of students to become practitioners and leaders of Sport and Performance Psychology who integrate the art and science of mental skills training.
