The Sport & Exercise Psychology program at Purdue University is overseen by Dr. Meghan McDonough and Dr. Steve Amireault, and is part of the Department of Health and Kinesiology, in the College of Health and Human Sciences. We examine a variety of research questions using both qualitative and quantitative methods. Our research focuses on social relationships, self-perceptions, motivation, emotion, physical activity in special populations, and adaptation to adversity in sport, exercise, and physical activity.
