SEP 212 - Community Service Day - Fall 2012Students interested in pursuing a career in sport and exercise psychology or in sport sociology know that most jobs will require that they must first complete a graduate degree before entering the job market. Thus, as a liberal arts program, the primary mission of the undergraduate major in sport and exercise psychology is to prepare students for graduate studies in sport and exercise psychology, in sport sociology, and/or in counseling.

What makes the undergraduate major in sport and exercise psychology unique? First, it is the only major of its kind in the state of West Virginia, and one of the few undergraduate programs in that nation that allows students to specialize in sport and exercise psychology or sport sociology. Second, the curriculum contains a number of exciting and innovative courses, such as the Social Psychology of Sport, Performance Enhancement, Exercise Psychology, the Psychology of Injury, and African Americans in Sport. Several of the courses in the curriculum can be used to meet requirements of the university’s liberal studies program. Third, through our major’s club, students will interact with each other, professors, leading professionals in the field, attend professional and student conferences, and participate in other student-centered professional and social activities.

  • avatar Still a void in sport and exercise psychology?
    • An attempt is made to determine how race, ethnicity, and sexual orientation have been addressed in the recent sport and exercise psychology literature. The results state that despite an increase in the number of papers that include references to race and ethnicity, there has been no systematic attempt to include the experience of marginalized groups in the literature.
