Florida State’s Sport Psychology program is designed for graduate students who wish to study in the area of sport behavior, gain skills that may be applied to enhance sport skill performance, and learn to assist athletes in resolving sport-related problems. The program provides a solid foundation in sport psychology theory, real-life situational practice, and research. We offer degrees at the master’s and doctoral level in this program.
