Field of Study:Psychology, Other
Description:The Bachelor of Arts in Sport Psychology is the only one of its kind in Canada. It is offered in partnership with the Department of Psychology, and is designed to introduce students to the field of Sport Psychology (both theoretical and applied), and to foster a multi-disciplinary understanding of the psychological factors that affect performance and how participation in sport and exercise affect psychological and physical factors. In addition to instruction and training of psychological skills for performance improvement and enhanced motivation, applied sport psychology may include work with athletes, coaches, and parents regarding injury, rehabilitation, communication, team building, and career transitions. Working with or acting as a coach, teacher, wellness consultant, or researcher in sport and physical activity, the experiences and knowledge provided through this program will lend themselves well to a professional workplace setting. The program is not intended as a terminal degree and allows for students to continue their studies at the graduate level in education or masters programs.

Of major note is the fact that the English Sport Psychology program can be taken in conjunction with the English Concurrent Education program to allow students to complete their BA degree after 4 years of study and their teaching certificate and Bachelor of Education at the end of their 5th year of studies. This program is offered in both English and French.
