Purpose

The goal of the Psychology of Sport and Exercise CUGS is to provide students with a
sequence of courses to enhance knowledge in the field of psychology and performance
in the sport and exercise environment. Achieving this certificate will enhance awareness
of general information regarding sports psychology, performance and exercise by
focusing on theories, models and processes.

This CUGS will be of value to students interested in working in health profession fields in
