About the Program

The master's program in Sport, Exercise, and Performance Psychology at UW Green Bay was designed to fulfill the needs of students who would like to have a master's degree as their final degree and also of those who would like to pursue a doctoral degree in the future. Here are the main features of the program:
  • It has two tracks:
    • Thesis: Introduces the students to advanced research methods and culminates on a master thesis.
    • Applied: Prepares students to work with applied sport and performance psychology or exercise psychology, providing the foundation courses to become Certified Mental Performance Consultants® (CMPC).
  • The learning outcomes are in line with the knowledge areas and tasks identified by the Association for Applied Sport Psychology (AASP) as central for competent work in SEPP.
  • The program is housed in the Psychology Department, which has great faculty specialized in various areas: counseling psychology, developmental psychology, neuroscience, aging, school psychology, social psychology, health psychology, etc. Students may, for example, choose a thesis advisor in one of these areas, if it relates to their specific interest in SEPP.
  • The Psychology department has a great lab with EEG, eye tracker, biofeedback, and implicit bias testing software.
  • Two faculty who are CMPCs and can supervise students for CMPC hours.
  • The program has great partners in the community, including the Green Bay Packers.
