 The Bachelor of Science in Athletic Training is being discontinued and replaced with a Masters of Science in Athletic Training. We are no longer accepting students into Pre-Athletic Training because it will not serve as the best route for students desiring to become athletic trainers. Instead, we suggest completing a bachelor's degree in Kinesiology with an option in Exercise Science. This option provides the best opportunity for you to complete the pre-requisite courses for Athletic Training while obtaining your bachelor's degree.
