Athletic Training Programs
The Weber State University Department of Athletic Training and Nutrition offers both undergraduate and graduate programs in Athletic Training. Both are considered professional (entry-level) programs and serve as educational routes to eligibility for certification. Students who do not currently possess a bachelor's degree will enter the Athletic Training major. Students who successfully complete this major are eligible to sit for the Board of Certification (BOC) examination to become a Certified Athletic Trainer. More information on this major is available under the "Undergraduate Program" link to the left.
Students who currently possess a bachelor's degree in an area other than Athletic Training are eligible to apply for admission to the Master of Science in Athletic Training Program. This is a 2-year program, including one summer. This program is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE). Graduates are eligible for the Board of Certification (BOC) examination and an athletic training license in Utah. This program is not appropriate for students who already have undergraduate degrees in Athletic Training and/or those who are already Certified Athletic Trainers. More information on the MS in AT is available under the "Graduate Program" link to the left.
The Athletic Training program received the Apple Distinguished Program Award in 2013 due to the implementation of cutting edge technology across the curriculum. iPads and mobile devices are utilized in all classrooms as teaching modalities and to extend the classroom into the clinical lab space. Students in the athletic training programs at Weber State University utilize the same technology as practitioners in the field and graduate from our programs ready to function in diverse medical settings.
