* Options available
** Counts toward Exercise Science degree requirements.

  • • Requirements for Thesis or Capstone: Three credit hours in AT566 Research Methods (Capstone Project) will count toward degree. Formal presentation of the project is required. The paper must be approved by the student’s advisor and program director before degree is granted.
  • • Students will complete the general education coursework by the end of the 3rd year spring semester (100 hours). The remaining 20 hours required to complete the BS degree in exercise science will be earned by taking graduate courses in athletic training taken in the summer between the 3rd and 4th year and during the fall of the 4th year of study. CAATE standards require all Athletic Training content courses to be taught at graduate level.
  • • Students who don’t meet the requirements to enter the MSAT program can finish the exercise science degree provided they meet those requirements. Students who don’t qualify for entrance into MSAT by deficiency will have the opportunity to satisfy the deficiency and re-apply upon successful completion but will not be allowed to matriculate into MSAT program.
  • • If student did not get into MSAT program, would have to complete courses below for exercise science degree.
