As both athletes and sporting organisations across the globe continue to invest more time and money into mental health, mindfulness, and the connection between physical and mental wellbeing when it comes to exercise, sports psychology has never been a more crucial aspect of the global sports industry. Sport psychology examines how psychological factors influence sport, athletic performances, and exercise in a variety of ways.
A degree in sport psychology is a stepping-stone for people who want to help athletes and teams to optimize performance and overcome any obstacle that stands in the way of peak performance. The skills developed whilst studying a degree in sport psychology can be applied to athletes and teams of all level, from elite sport, through to an exercise setting. Many of the skills develops could also be transferrable to work in a broader health setting.
