In response to nationwide changes to the requirements for accreditation of Athletic Training education, all programs are transitioning from a bachelor’s degree program in Athletic Training to a master’s degree program in athletic training. As a result and effective as of 2019-2020 Academic Year, the Bachelor of Science in Athletic Training degree program at San Diego State University (SDSU) is no longer accepting applications.
The proposed SDSU Masters of Science in Athletic Training (MSAT) degree program is planning to start taking applications in Spring 2022 for a Summer 2022 start date, pending approval from the CSU Chancellor’s Office. Students interested in this MSAT degree program are eligible to declare or transfer in as an undergraduate Kinesiology major with a Fitness Specialist emphasis or related field in order to satisfy the pre-requisites for the proposed MSAT degree program. Proposed pre-requisites for the program can be found under the “Prospective Student” tab of the Athletic Training site.
More information about the accreditation of athletic training education, and the professional degree change, can be found on the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE) website.
For specific information or questions, regarding the professional degree change at San Diego State University, please contact Denise Lebsack, firstname.lastname@example.org, Athletic Training Program Director.
