Bachelor of Science in Athletic Training
The Department of Kinesiology offers a program that leads to the Bachelor of Science degree in Athletic Training (BSAT). The degree requires a minimum of 120 semester units. Students enter the program as a cohort and take a prescribed set of courses each semester for four semesters. The General Education requirements are the same for all CSU Fresno students.
Students who are enrolled and/or registered in their final semester prior to graduation or have already graduated are eligible to sit for the Board of Certification exam. The program is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE).
Applicants must meet all criteria for admission to the university and to the Athletic Training major. Admission to the program is a two-part process: (1) admission to the university and also (2) admission to the Athletic Training major. All prerequisites must be completed with no more than two in-progress at the time of application to the Athletic Training major.
All students who have been admitted to CSU Fresno, but have not yet been admitted to the Athletic Training Program will be admitted to the University as "Pre-Athletic Training" students. Admission to the University does not guarantee admission to the Athletic Training program.
