Upcoming Changes to Programs

Based on new requirements by the Strategic Alliance, The BAT/Athletic Training Program will transition to a professional master's degree program beginning summer 2020. The athletic training program is no longer accepting students into the undergraduate degree program. We will be teaching out the undergraduate curriculum and will begin the master’s degree program in the summer of 2020.



Our program is accredited through the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE) in Austin, Texas. Learn more.

We encourage future undergraduate students who wish to become athletic trainers to explore our exercise science major, a great way to prepare for the graduate program in Athletic Training.
