Each curriculum consists of 110 hours of applied instruction (interactive lectures, group work, social interactions with classmates and staff, case studies, role plays, debriefing, discussions and feedback), 100 hours of postgraduate supervised practice (…working with athletes, coaches, parents, teams etc.) and 25 hours of supervision. The curriculum includes units in counselling skills, professional ethics, assessment and evaluation, and psychological theories and interventions. We provide an immersive learning experience with a diverse faculty. Our Professors are experienced sport psychology practitioners as well as applied researchers, and leaders in the field of sport psychology.
