People who are interested in expanding their sports and exercise knowledge can choose among four separate concentrations: high-performance coaching, strength and conditioning, sports psychology, and generalist, which is a flex option.
Throughout their course of study, students will learn about the factors that affect optimal performance. The curriculum will help them to understand the biomechanical, physiological, and psychological elements of fitness. Lecturers will also prepare students to work with athletes and deliver strength and conditioning expertise.
In the sports psychology concentration, students will understand the mental factors that affect exercise adherence, while the generalist concentration allows them the flexibility to design their own degree around their strongest interests.
The program includes lectures by industry experts, coursework, practical applications, and a capstone experience. More information can be found by visiting https://online.sfc.edu/st-francis-college-launched-first-cohort-of-masters-program-in-exercise-sport-science-with-four-concentration-offerings.
