PSYC 247 Sport Psychology
This psychology of sport is the study of the interaction between psychological constructs and processes and optimal performance in athletes and athletic competition. Because this multifaceted field continues to evolve, it assumes many of its theories and concepts from general, social, personality, and development psychology as well as exercise physiology, sport sociology, and motor learning. This course is ideal for students who wish to (a) pursue graduate studies in sport psychology, (b) work in the Sports Management field, and/or (c) earn a New York State Coaching Certificate. (LA)
