Requirements
The master’s degree concentrations in sport psychology and sport sociology have a great deal of flexibility that allows students to take courses that best suit their individual professional goals and interests. Students are required to take 30 hours, with at least 20 of those hours comprised of 500 or 600 level courses. A minimum of 15 hours must be selected from the current sport studies courses. Additional courses may be selected from either sport studies or other departments. The non-thesis option, which consists of 30 hours and a written comprehensive exam, is designed for graduates seeking positions as practitioners (e.g., teachers, coaches, athletic trainers, etc.). The thesis option, which consists of 24 hours of course work and a 6-hour thesis (SPST 500 ), is recommended for students who intend to pursue a Ph.D. degree after graduating and is available only upon consultation with and approval by the student’s advisor.
