PS203 Sports and Exercise Psychology
Prerequisite: PS 101

This course provides an overview of the field of sport and exercise psychology. The course allows the student to synthesize major areas of the Introduction to Psychology course, such as life span, cognition, learning, classical conditioning, and applied psychology, in a new and more specialized area of psychology. Some dimensions of sport and exercise psychology include anxiety, aggression, arousal, motivation, and leadership. The effects of these dimensions upon such groups as the elite athlete, the female athlete, the youthful athlete, and the recreational athlete will be discussed. Other topics, such as performance enhancement, the healthy life style, and clinical and professional issues, are likely to be addressed. A library component will be included.
