Beyond core requirements, students complete the major requirements by choosing a concentration. Based on a student’s primary interests, the choice of a concentration enables the student to begin to prepare for post-baccalaureate work in psychology. Concentrations should be declared in the spring semester of the sophomore year.
The sports psychology concentration increases the student's understanding of the field and prepares him/her for advanced study in this area of psychology. This emphasis involves the study and understanding of the psychological factors associated with performance in sports and other types of physical activity.
