Bachelor of Science in Athletic Training

The Department of Sports Medicine offers the B.S. in Athletic Training, a CAATE-accredited program, which prepares students to achieve national certification from the Board of Certification, Inc. (BOC). Students completing this major also are eligible for entry-level athletic training positions. The current B.S. in Athletic Training is being phased out upon matriculation of the fall 2016 class. Students who are interested in athletic training will complete a 3+2 accelerated program earning both a B.S. degree in Health Science: Sports Medicine Studies Concentration and a M.S. degree in Athletic Training. The M.S. degree in Athletic Training will enable students to sit for the Board of Certification (BOC) exam and prepare them for a career as an athletic trainer. West Chester University is petitioning the Commission on the Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE) to complete a suB.S.tantive change to create an entry-level Master of Science in Athletic Training program beginning in the 2017-2018 academic year.
