The Master of Arts in Sport and Performance Psychology (MASPP) program aspires to develop competent, ethical, and socially conscious professionals who will be future leaders in the field of sport and performance psychology (SPP). The mission of the MASPP program is to serve our students and the Denver community, and in so doing establish standards for the field academically and professionally. We serve our students by facilitating applied opportunities for sport and performance consultation, engaging them to advance scholarly inquiry and cultivate critical thinking, and actively mentoring students in the application of performance principles and professional issues. We provide an innovative, leading edge educational environment capitalizing on our faculty's ongoing applied experiences.
