Major 

Athletic Training Undergraduate Major (BS, CRED, HBS)

Print Version Print
College of Public Health and Human Sciences | School of Biological and Population Health Sciences


This program will be terminated pending approval of 96772.

 

The Athletic Training major is transitioning to a master's level degree, therefore, admission to the undergraduate degree has been suspended. Students interested in becoming certified athletic trainers can apply for admission to the master's level professional program in athletic training following completion of an undergraduate degree. The newly created master’s degree in athletic training is expected to commence in July of 2016. Additional information can be found at http://health.oregonstate.edu/degrees/athletic-training/.

The Athletic Training major at Oregon State University is a four-year degree program. The first year is classified as the Pre-Athletic Training year. This Pre-Athletic Training year precedes formal admission into the Athletic Training major. Once admitted to the Athletic Training major, the student will take three years of specialized course work and will complete supervised clinical-educational experiences at an affiliated athletic training facility.

Upon successful completion of the Athletic Training major, the student is eligible to sit for the Board of Certification (BOC) examination. BOC certification (ATC) establishes the entry-level credential to work as an athletic trainer. Athletic training encompasses the prevention, diagnosis and intervention of emergency, acute and chronic medical conditions involving impairment, functional limitations and disabilities. Athletic trainers work in a variety of settings, including sports medicine clinics, hospitals, high schools, colleges and universities, professional sports teams, and corporate/industrial settings.

The Athletic Training major is transitioning to a master's level degree, therefore, the 2013–2014 academic year is the last year in which students can apply for admission into the undergraduate Athletic Training program. Beginning in 2014–2015, students interested in becoming certified athletic trainers can pursue an undergraduate degree in Exercise and Sport Science and then apply for admission to the master's level degree in Athletic Training that will be in place upon the completion of the undergraduate degree. Please see the following site for updated information on the transition: http://health.oregonstate.edu/degrees/athletic-training/graduate.
