Athletic Training Program - B.S./M.S.

Important Phase-out Notice

Recent changes in the goals and strategic planning at the Institutional, School and Department levels have resulted in the decision to discontinue the Athletic Training Program in May 2010. The last opportunity to enter the professional sequence (i.e. the traditional “junior” year) of the Program will occur in the summer of 2007, when the Class of 2010 begins the third year of study at UB. The Athletic Training Program is known to be of high academic quality. Throughout the phase-out period, we pledge to deliver the same high quality academic experiences that gained the Program full accreditation status. For individual advisement, contact the Program Director.

Acceptance Criteria

The athletic training program is a five-year combined B.S./M.S. program. Students must apply online for this program. To be eligible, students must have a “C” or better in all prerequisite courses, a minimum prerequisite GPA of 2.8, and 50 hours of clinical work in an athletic training room.
