The Department of Athletic Training is pleased to announce two new exciting degree opportunities!

Posted by Beth Funkhouser

Beginning in August 2017, in addition to our successful undergraduate professional program in Athletic Training, the  Department of Athletic Training will begin offering a Bachelor of Science in Exercise Science. Exercise Science is one of the most popular majors nationally and prepares students for careers in many health fields or continued studies in graduate health and medical sciences.  

Additionally, a Master of Science in Athletic Training program will begin in May 2018 for those students with an earned baccalaureate degree who wish to become certified athletic trainers.  As Emory & Henry is in application with the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE) for a change of degree level, the department will no longer be accepting students into the athletic training program at the undergraduate level.
