How can psychology be used to improve motivation and performance? How does physical activity improve mental health and overall well-being? How do stress and other psychological factors affect health and wellness?
These are some of the questions you’ll explore as a student in this exciting program. You’ll engage in original research projects in collaboration with faculty and have the opportunity to assist with ongoing research into biofeedback as a tool for exercise motivation. You’ll gain additional professional experience by completing an internship in the field, so by the time you graduate you’ll be well-prepared for a career or further study in this growing discipline.
Programs as strong and diverse as this have been offered at only a handful of major universities outside New England and were rarely available to undergraduates — until now.
