About the Program

The undergraduate Athletic Training education program is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE). The goals of the program are to prepare students as entry-level athletic trainers through an extensive curriculum of didactic and clinical experiences and to prepare students to sit for and pass the Board of Certification (BOC) exam. Some Athletic Training students choose to pursue graduate or professional school (physical therapy (PT), occupational therapy (OT), physician’s assistant (PA), etc.). The program consists of academic coursework offered by the Department of Health & Kinesiology and clinical education experiences with the Division of Intercollegiate Athletics (ICA), the Division of Recreational Sports (RSC), and the Purdue University Student Health Center (PUSH), as well as several off-campus sites. Purdue is a member of the Big Ten Conference and offers 9 men’s and 9 women’s sports at the NCAA Division 1 level.

Note: Athletic Training is a selective program. Students begin in Pre-Athletic Training in the fall semester and apply to the professional program during the spring semester. Admittance to the Athletic Training Professional Program is required to continue in the Athletic Training major.

Notes


  • A student may elect the Pass / Not-Pass grading option for elective courses only, unless an academic unit requires that a specific departmental course/s be taken Pass / Not-Pass.  Students may elect to take University Core Curriculum courses Pass / Not-Pass; however, some major Plans of Study require courses that also fulfill UCC foundational outcomes.  In such cases, students may not elect the Pass / Not-Pass option.  A maximum of 24 credits of elective courses under the Pass / Not-pass grading option can be used toward graduation requirements. For further information, students should refer to the College of Health and Human Sciences Pass / Not-Pass Policy.
  • 2.0 Graduation GPA required for Bachelor of Science degree.
  • “C-” or better required in all HK courses.
  • At least 32 credits of Purdue coursework required at 30000 level or higher. This major includes 45 credits (if taken at Purdue).

Critical Course


The ♦ course is considered critical.

In alignment with the Degree Map Guidance for Indiana’s Public Colleges and Universities, published by the Commission for Higher Education (pursuant to HEA 1348-2013), a Critical Course is identified as “one that a student must be able to pass to persist and succeed in a particular major.  Students who want to be nurses, for example, should know that they are expected to be proficient in courses like biology in order to be successful.  These would be identified by the institutions for each degree program”. 

Disclaimer


The student is ultimately responsible for knowing and completing all degree requirements.

The myPurduePlan powered by DegreeWorks is the knowledge source for specific requirements and completion.
