In tandem with national changes, SRU is transitioning the Athletic Training BS program to a Master of Science degree. As a result, SRU is no longer accepting undergraduate students into the Athletic Training BS program. The SRU Class of 2020 will be the last cohort to graduate from the Bachelor of Science in Athletic Training degree.
APPLICATIONS FOR THE athletic training GRADUATE PROGRAM WILL OPEN JULY 1, 2018 FOR THE 2019-2020 ACADEMIC YEAR.
Athletic Training prepares selected students with the knowledge, skills, and abilities to provide care to athletes and the physically active within the five domains of athletic training practice. In order for students to attain the Board of Certification (BOC) credentials, an individual must complete a professional athletic training education program accredited by CAATE and pass the BOC credentialing exam. To practice legally as an athletic trainer, an individual must hold proper state regulatory credentials.
Slippery Rock University of Pennsylvania is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE). The program will have its next comprehensive review during the 2020-2021 academic year.
