Athletic Training (BSAT)

The undergraduate Athletic Training Program at Temple University is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE).  The program was approved by the CAATE for a change in level of degree to the Master of Science in Athletic Training. Temple University is no longer accepting students into the undergraduate athletic training program. The last undergraduate cohort is expected to graduate in May 2019.  For information on our accredited Master of Science in Athletic Training program, please click here.

The undergraduate Athletic Training Program (ATP) housed in the Department of Kinesiology is designed to prepare students to apply to the Board of Certification (BOC) to take the exam that, if passed, allows an individual to practice as a Certified Athletic Trainer. The Temple University Athletic Training Program is in good standing with the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE).

The mission of the ATP is to teach ethical reasoning abilities and interpersonal skills to students that will work with the physically active population, to produce clinicians who display sound decision-making and good judgments through critical thinking and analysis of salient facts, and to encourage students to assume a leadership role in their professional careers.

Program requirements include completion of academic course work to develop the competencies necessary to prevent, identify, rehabilitate, and care for athletic injuries. The athletic training didactic program of study extends over six semesters. The clinical education component of the athletic training program extends over five semesters and cannot be expedited. Students must also fulfill their general education and kinesiology core requirements to earn a Bachelor of Science in Athletic Training. View Curriculum
