Athletic Training - B.S./M.S.
Ithaca College offers an accelerated, combined B.S./M.S. dual degree curriculum in a 5-year program that results in students earning both the B.S. in Exercise Science, Pre-Athletic Training and the M.S. in Athletic Training. Students intending to become certified athletic trainers (ATC) via the Ithaca College professional program in athletic training will enter Ithaca College as Dual Degree majors in the B.S. in Exercise Science, Pre-Athletic Training/M.S. in Athletic Training program as the sole entry point into the five-year professional program. Graduates of the dual degree program will be eligible to take the Board of Certification for the Athletic Trainer examination as required by New York State and to apply for professional licensure/certification.
The following degrees are combined to comprise this dual degree program.
B.S., Exercise Science, Pre-Athletic Training (Undergraduate)
Exercise Science Pre-Athletic Training majors must successfully complete all required courses, maintain a 3.0 GPA, and meet all professional program expectations (see Special Academic Status Policy) in order to matriculate into the professional phase of the dual degree and to continue in the program. Students who do not meet the expectations for admission to the professional phase of the dual degree program will be advised into other majors.
The fourth year of study will include the final year of undergraduate coursework and the first year of the professional/graduate-level coursework phase of the program. The B.S. portion of the program is completed after four years of study in the five-year combined B.S. Exercise Science, Pre-Athletic Training/ M.S. Athletic Training program and does not provide eligibility for licensure/certification as an athletic trainer.
M.S., Athletic Training (Graduate/Professional)
During the fourth year of the dual degree program, students enter the professional phase of study and will continue into a final full graduate year of study, year 5, consisting of summer, fall and spring semesters including a 4-week full time clinical immersion experience (spring), and an intensive clinical research component. Students completing the full dual degree program will receive a B.S. in Exercise Science, Pre-Athletic Training, an M.S. in Athletic Training, and will be eligible to take the national certification examination from the Board of Certification for the Athletic Trainer.
