Exercise Science/Athletic Training, BS

The College of Health Professions offers entry-level graduate clinical education in Athletic Training (AT) that articulates directly with Exercise Science. It consists of three years of fairly typical work in the College of Arts and Sciences (A&S) and two years of work in the clinical program. This 3/2 pathway is built upon options within the Motor Behavior emphasis and available only to students accepted to the highly selective AT program. Students complete the Bachelor of Science and Master of Science in Athletic Training in 5 years, rather than in 6 as would be the case if they took these two programs separately.

To utilize this route, all A&S core coursework requirements (with the exception of Capstone), all Athletic Training prerequisites, specified Exercise Science classes, and a minimum of 93 total credits shall be completed by the end of the 3rd academic year. During the fall of the junior year, students may apply to begin clinical studies in the AT program for the 4th academic year. If a student is accepted to the AT program, specific coursework successfully completed according to Athletic Training program standards during the first clinical year will satisfy the remaining requirements for the BS in Exercise Science with a Motor Behavior emphasis. These students are also required to deliver a formal public presentation overview of their first year clinical internship experiences to complete the A&S Capstone requirement. The undergraduate diploma will be conferred at the traditional May commencement ceremony of the student’s 4th year. If a student is not accepted into the AT program, s/he will have the opportunity to complete the Motor Behavior emphasis during the traditional time-frame with little to no complications.
