Athletic training includes the evaluation, treatment, rehabilitation, and prevention of injuries occurring to the physically active. The B.A.Sc. athletic training program prepares undergraduate students academically and clinically for the athletic training profession. Students complete program and degree requirements while gaining clinical experience under the direction and supervision of a certified athletic trainer or other allied health professional at a UMD affiliated clinical site. Students in the athletic training program are expected to abide by the NATA Code of Ethics. A detailed athletic training education program policies and procedures manual, including learning goals and objectives and technical standards for the program is available on the ATEP website. Transfer course equivalencies for required ESAT courses are determined by the program director. Transfer students should plan for a minimum of six semesters in the program, regardless of the number of credits completed at the transfer institution. This is a competitive entry program. A maximum of 16 students are admitted to the program each year.
Program Delivery
This program is available:
  • via classroom (the majority of instruction is face-to-face)
Admission Requirements
Students must complete 8 courses before admission to the program.
Freshman and transfer students are usually admitted to pre-major status before admission to this major.

  8. The minimum cumulative UM GPA required for graduation will be 2.00 and will include only University of Minnesota coursework. A minimum UM GPA of 2.00 is required in each UMD undergraduate major and minor. No academic unit may impose higher grade point standards to graduate.
  9. Diploma, transcripts, and certification will be withheld until all financial obligations to the University have been met.
Program Requirements
Requirements for the B.A.Sc. in athletic training: * Students are required to review their degree status in the CEHSP Advising & Academic Services Office early in their senior year. * Degree candidates must complete at least 20 of the last 30 degree credits immediately before graduation at UMD. * Athletic training majors must complete both the didactic and clinical components to meet the minimum requirements to qualify for the Board of Certification (BOC) exam. Courses for these components of the program should be taken in the sequence outline below. The clinical education component is a six-semester experience that begins in the fall semester of the sophomore year. The rotations include area high schools, two area colleges or universities, and the UMD athletic training center. In addition to BOC certification, many states require either state licensure, registration, or certification to practice athletic training in the state of employment.
