The Athletic Training program‘s substantive level of degree change was approved in February 2020 by the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE). We are now offering a Master of Science in Athletic Training, which is a professional program specializing in the prevention, assessment, treatment and rehabilitation of injuries and illnesses. Therefore, our program is no longer accepting students into the professional phase of the undergraduate program, and the program will be taught out until May 2023.
