Graduate Program Directory

One of the most frequently asked questions by students interested in sport and exercise psychology concerns which university to attend. Before deciding on a specific school, though, it is important for you to know what you want to do professionally within the field (see APA Division 47 Graduate Training & Career Possibilities). Given the interdisciplinary nature of the field, there are many different educational paths you can take to receive the necessary training, and knowing what you want to do will help you narrow down your choices.

Once you have decided on a career path, you are in a better position to select a graduate training program that matches your interests. To assist you in this selection process and make you a more informed consumer, a group of professional sport psychologists developed the "Directory of Graduate Programs in Applied Sport Psychology" published by Fitness Information Technologies, Inc. Completely revised and updated, the fifth edition contains a wealth of information on over 100 master's and doctoral degree programs in the United States, Canada, Australia, Great Britain, and South Africa. Program information, financial assistance, faculty profiles, unique features,
and internships are reported for each college and university. In addition, the book includes updated information on certification and licensure, ethical issues, career opportunities, and background readings.

If you are searching for a graduate school that will meet your interests and training needs, then this may be the ideal resource for you.
