Health and Human Performance Bachelor of Science/Athletic Training Master of Science 3+2 Option
The 3+2 between Health and Human Performance and Athletic Training Program (ATP) allows students to obtain both a Bachelor’s degree in Health and Human Performance (HHP) and Master’s degree in Athletic Training (AT) within five years, which is extremely beneficial to the student financially and effectively decreases time spent working towards a degree. Students are required to complete three years in the undergraduate HHP major, obtaining general education requirements as well as prerequisite courses for the ATP. During the third year, the student applies for acceptance into the ATP. If not accepted, the student may reapply to the ATP and continue to work on coursework for the HHP degree. If accepted, the student will begin specific ATP coursework in the beginning of the fourth year, with coursework beginning in June. After successful completion of the fourth year, students are eligible for graduation with the bachelor’s degree. At the successful completion of the fifth year, students are eligible for graduation with the master’s degree as well as eligible to take the Board of Certification (BOC) examination.
Student Learning Outcomes include:
- Students will meet or exceed minimal requirements for professional certification.
- Students will ascertain and demonstrate the required skills for all NATA Athletic Training Education competencies and clinical integration proficiencies.
- Students will display critical thinking skills and formulate sound clinical decisions in their Clinical field experiences.
- Students will develop, design, and execute independent research projects.
- Undergraduate GPA of 3.0 (GPA below 3.0 may be considered)
- A standard graduate admission test (GRE or equivalent) must be on record if cumulative GPA is below a 3.0.
- Three (3) letters of recommendation from academic and professional references concerning the candidate's potential to succeed in graduate school. At least one letter must be from a certified athletic trainer.
- It is recommended but not required to obtain a minimum of 25-50 contact hours with a certified athletic trainer.
- Official transcripts from each institution attended.
- An essay stating why the student wants to be an athletic trainer, career goals, and the attributes the student possesses that will make him or her successful in life and athletic training.
- Completed application through ATCAS. Once application and admission through ATCAS is complete, the MSUB graduate student application must be completed and the application fee paid.
- The program has rolling admission; therefore students can apply at any time, but application to begin the program in June must be completed in May.
- Students will be required to participate in an internet- or phone-based interview with faculty from the program.
Once a student has met all admission criteria and is admitted into the ATP, that student will receive provisional acceptance. In order to gain full acceptance the student will have to successfully complete the following:
- Technical Standards
- Criminal Background Check
- Prerequisite Courses. If a student does not have all the prerequisite courses and has met all other criteria for admission into the ATP, a student will be allowed one (1) year to successfully complete prerequisite courses and to gain admission.
