Career Opportunities in Sport Psychology

Mental Attitude and Surf Sports Psychology | Surf FuerteventuraI am in the process of getting a bachelor’s degree in psychology at North Carolina state University and I will be graduating with my degree soon, so I am trying to think about future careers. I am really hoping to find a career that is aligned with my interests and will keep me happy in my job for a long time. I have always been interested in sport psychology as well, and I am hoping that I can figure out how to become someone who works with athletes with my degree.

I had already thought about trying to get a master’s degree, or maybe even going to school longer than that. I really hope that I can afford to continue going to school though, because I have already accumulated a lot of money in debt.
