3+2 BS EXSS Exercise Physiology/MS Athletic Training

This program allows qualified students to complete the BS EXSS: Exercise Physiology in four years and the MS Athletic Training after the fifth year.   Students in this accelerated program will be evaluated for MSAT admission after the completion of the sophomore year.  A maximum of 15 students will be guaranteed admission upon completion of the ATCAS and the Graduate School application process.

MSAT admission requirements include: 50 observation hours under the direct supervision of a licensed athletic trainer, a minimum 3.0 overall GPA, and a C or higher in the following pre-requisite courses

BIO 1000/BIOL 1000

CHM 1300/1100 or 1400/1120

EXPH 2100/2110

EXPH 2200/2210

EXPH 3450/3460 or EXPH 4100/4110*

EXPH 4120/4130

HLTH 2100

MAT 2100

PHY 1500/1560

Formal admittance will be granted in the junior year and students will begin the MSAT program in the summer after their junior year.  The MSAT is a full-time, year-round professional program and students admitted into the MSAT will be involved in clinical immersions that will prevent participation in extracurricular activities.  

Students who are not meeting admission requirements at the completion of the sophomore year will not be allowed to continue in the accelerated program and will be required to change their major. Students recommended for admission who fall below admissions standards or fail to complete the admissions requirements during the junior year will not be allowed to matriculate into the MSAT. These students will be required to complete the fourth year of the BS EXSS: Exercise Physiology degree, but would still have the option to apply to the MSAT through the standard application process. 

*Both are required for the degree, but the course with the higher grades will be used for admission purposes.

NOTE:  Students must complete at least two WE courses within their General Education requirements in order to meet the university writing requirement.

General Education: 44 Sem. Hrs.

See General Education Program  for available options in each category.
