Degree Change in Athletic Training: The Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE) has mandated that students may continue to enroll in Bachelor's degree athletic training programs through Fall 2022. Thereafter, schools offering degrees in athletic training can do so only at the graduate level. Starting in Fall 2018, PLNU's athletic training undergraduate program will transition to the professional standard graduate level master's program. Therefore, students enrolling in Point Loma after Fall 2017 will no longer be admitted into the undergraduate athletic training program.
Students seeking to enroll in our athletic training program should apply to the Exercise and Sport Science major, with a concentration in Pre-Allied Health. Students who plan to enroll after Fall 2017 have two exciting options:
An accelerated 3+2 degree program in athletic training beginning Summer 2018. Students enrolled in this program will earn both a Bachelor's and Master's degree in five years. View the application information page for more information on the admission requirements.
Students who already hold a Bachelor's degree in a related field of study from another institution and who have completed the prerequisite coursework and requirements may apply directly into the 2-year Master of Science in Athletic Training program beginning Summer 2018.
