Athletic Training program to end

Our bachelor's degree Athletic Training program will graduate its final students Spring Semester 2022.

From Fall 2019 forward, it will not be available to incoming students.

The changing nature of health care and an increased emphasis on inter-professional practice prompted accreditation, certification, advocacy and research organizations to mandate that Athletic Training be a master's-degree program.
