Sport & Exercise Science - Minor (INDS)

The Sport Minor (INDS)

For information about this program, please contact Bruce Klonsky at

The minor in Sport offers interested students the opportunity to explore psychological, physiological, and sociological aspects of sport. The contributions of the behavioral, social and physical sciences (psychology, sociology and physiology) will be emphasized. The core courses for this program include Sport Psychology, the Sociology of Sport, and the Physiology of Exercise and Sport. Students will also be required to choose one course in each of the following concentration areas: (a) physiological bases, (b) group and organizational contexts, (c) developmental and educational issues and principles, and (d) personality, assessment, and counseling issues.

The course categories utilized in this minor are strongly influenced by the criteria that the Association for Applied Sport Psychology requires for the certification of doctoral-level professional sport consultants. This program will aid in the preparation of students for graduate work dealing with sport and exercise behavior within their discipline (e.g. psychology, sociology, kinesiology, and exercise science). It will also provide important information about sport and exercise behavior for those planning to be coaches, fitness specialists, physical therapists, and athletic trainers.
