About Miami

Miami University, established in 1809, is a public university located in Oxford, Ohio. With a student body of nearly 19,000, Miami effectively combines a wide range of strong academic programs with the personal attention ordinarily found only at much smaller institutions.

The Sport Leadership Graduate Program offers two Graduate Certificates: one in Sport Psychology and one in Sport Management.

The Department of Sport Leadership and Management (SLAM) also offers a combined program. The combined bachelors-masters program allows highly qualified students to simultaneously pursue both a bachelors and masters degree.

The Sport Psychology Graduate Certificate focuses on the study of psychological and social factors that influence sport and physical activity participation. Sport psychology involves the study of human thought, emotion, and behavior in recreational and competitive sport. This includes the study of individual processes such as motivational orientations, self-efficacy, and stress/anxiety, as well as social factors such as group processes, coaching, and leadership effectiveness.
The Sport Management Graduate Certificate is designed to train students for management and leadership positions within the sport industry. With a focus on sport venue management, sport marketing, and strategic management of sport organizations, this graduate certificate program seeks to develop forward and innovative leaders for the future of the sport industry.
