Barry ranked among top 25 schools for graduate sport psychology programs

Barry University was recently named by Online Psychology Degrees as one of the top schools for graduate programs in sport psychology.

The Sport, Exercise, and Performance Psychology program at Barry is ranked No. 20, and is one of only two programs from Florida to be included in the ranking.

Programs were selected for ranking based on criteria such as cost of attendance, number of degree and specialization options offered, accreditation, and acknowledgement by a national ranking body. The highlighted programs are referred to as “the best graduate programs in the field of sports psychology in the United States.”

Barry University’s Master’s in Movement Sciences with a specialization in Sport, Exercise, and Performance Psychology (SEPP) program offers advanced coursework in the sport sciences and psychology, focusing on the thought processes that ultimately influence the performance of individuals and groups involved in sport, exercise, and non-sport performance activities. The program offers thesis, applied, and dual track options in which students can gain valuable research and supervised applied practice experience.  In addition, a dual degree option has also recently been added in which students can obtain both an MS in SEPP along with an MBA.

Recent graduates of the program have been accepted into second master’s degrees in areas such as Counseling, PsyD programs in Mental Health Counseling and Athletic Counseling, and PhD programs in various areas, such as Sport Pedagogy and Sport Psychology. Additionally, alumni have also been accepted into the limited and prestigious internships available in the field, such as with IMG Academy, the New York Mets, and IJGA Golf Academy, have started their own consulting businesses, as well as have obtained full-time positions with major league baseball and the US military.
