BS in Exercise and Sport Science: Pre-Athletic Training Concentration

*this concentration is pending final approval by EKU's Board of Regents in June 2022 and will then be offered as an option in the Fall of 2022

The Pre-Athletic Training concentration of the BS in Exercise and Sport Science (ESS) degree is the best pathway to transition into the MS in Athletic Training (AT) Program coming straight from high school or as a transfer student. The core exercise and sport science courses build a foundation for acute injury care, understanding the impact of injury on function (pathophysiology), the evaluation process and appropriate interventions. In short, it builds a foundation, provides you with needed pre-requisites and connects you to program faculty.

Students in the Pre-Athletic Training concentration, meeting specific criteria, may apply to the graduate school early as part of the 3+2 Accelerated Dual Degree program (BS in ESS to MS in AT) and start graduate course work before completion of the bachelor's degree. This option will allow students to save both time and money in their pursuit of the ATC credential.

Students interested in the 3+2 program must:

Students interested in the program should contact their current ESS: Pre-AT advisor or Dr. Matthew Sabin to discuss the best path to get to the MS in AT Program and the option of the 3+2 Accelerated Dual Degree Program.
