***Anticipated Degree Transition for the Undergraduate BS in Athletic Training Major

The Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE) requires all professional programs in athletic training transition to master's-level education. As we plan for this transition, the Hofstra University BS in Athletic Training program will no longer accept new freshmen students into the BS in Athletic Training program/Pre-Athletic Training Major. All transfer students with 24 or more transferable credits must be enrolled in the BS in Athletic Training program at the start of the fall 2019 semester.

Beginning with the Fall 2019 semester, new freshmen (first-year) students are encouraged to enroll in other undergraduate degree programs offered by the School of Health Professions and Human Services.

New first-year students who are interested in learning about athletic training or anticipate pursuing a master's-level degree in athletic training may enroll in the Pre-Athletic Training Studies, Minor (Note: The Pre-Athletic Training Studies Minor Program does not qualify students for certification or state licensure as an Athletic Trainer.)

Students interested in learning more about the undergraduate Minor in Pre-Athletic Training Studies or master's-level athletic training education are encouraged to contact Dr. Jayne Ellinger at jayne.ellinger[at]hofstra.edu.

Updates on our program degree transition to a master's-level degree will be available on this website.

The BS in Athletic Training major is an undergraduate program that prepares students for employment in the profession of athletic training. The curriculum is designed to meet the entry-level athletic training competencies and proficiencies identified by the National Athletic Trainers’ Association Executive Committee on Education. It is also designed in accordance with the requirements established by the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE). Professional preparation includes development of the knowledge, skills and abilities associated with prevention and health promotion; clinical examination and diagnosis; therapeutic interventions; acute care of injury and illness; psychosocial strategies and referral; healthcare administration; evidence based practice; and professional development and responsibility. The classroom and clinical experiences provide graduates the ability to work with diverse populations in both traditional and non-traditional employment settings. Admission to the professional phase of the program is competitive.
