Sports Psychology Education and Career: Career Information

On average, sports psychologists earn an average salary of $63,000 to $85,000 per year. The exact salary an individual makes does vary based on experience, how much advanced training he received, area of specialization, and the psychologist's employer. Psychologists that are experienced and who work for professional athletes or a professional sports team have the potential of earning six-figure salaries. Those with a doctoral degree within their specialty have the best job outlook. There is intense competition for those with a Master's degree. If you possess a Master's degree in this field, you may find employment in research or as an assistant counselor, working under the direct supervision of a licensed psychologist.

If you are hoping to secure a full-time position, interning under the supervision of a professional or spending time volunteering with sports teams may be helpful.

You may choose to practice independently in consulting with athletes or sports teams. You may also choose to work alongside coaches, managers, and trainers with sports teams onsite.
