Doctorate of Philosophy

Sport Exercise Psychology

Welcome to the Sport and Exercise Psychology doctoral program home page. This doctoral program is recognized as one of the nation’s premier graduate training programs.

What makes this doctoral program unique?

Students can be admitted into the doctoral program with either an undergraduate degree or master’s degree. Students admitted to the doctoral program in Sport and Exercise Psychology with an undergraduate degree will also earn the master’s degree program in counseling. Thus, upon completion of the doctoral program, students are also awarded a master’s degree in counseling and can sit for the licensure examination as a professional counselor.

While we do not have a separate master’s degree track in sport psychology, students admitted to the doctoral program also earn the master’s degree with an emphasis in sport and exercise psychology prior to completing the doctoral program.


Note: As part of the WVU Board of Governors program review process, this program has been designated as a, “Board of Governors Program of Excellence
