Athletic Training (BS)


The mission of the Weber State University Bachelor of Science in Athletic Training Program is to provide a quality educational and research experience for students.  Students are presented with didactic and psychomotor experiences that will prepare them to exercise sound ethical judgment, achieve satisfying careers, and make positive contributions to their communities. In addition, the BSAT program guides the student on the journey to become a lifelong learner through obligatory professional continuing education.

The Department of Health Promotion and Human Performance (HPHP) offers an undergraduate program in Athletic Training. The Athletic Training Program (ATP) at Weber State University is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE), which enables students to obtain eligibility for the Board of Certification (BOC) examination. The ATP is specifically designed to prepare students for careers in allied health care. The program will provide students with skills in the prevention, evaluation, treatment, and rehabilitation of musculoskeletal injuries. Athletic trainers are employed in corporations, public schools, physical therapy clinics, universities, professional organizations, the military, factories, and hospitals.
