Transition to the Master’s-Level Professional Degree

Due to nation-wide changes in the accreditation of athletic training education, the current baccalaureate degree program in athletic training (BSAT) is in the process of transitioning to the master’s level degree (MSAT).

As a result, the current baccalaureate program (BSAT) is no longer accepting new applications, or transfer students.  

Students matriculating into the School of Public Health in summer 2017, who are interested in pursuing a career in athletic training, should refer to the Exercise Science: BS in Kinesiology tab sheet.

More information about the accreditation of athletic training education, and the professional degree change, can be found on the CAATE (Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training) Website.
