*This program is NOT an entry-level route to certification as an athletic trainer, which is distinctly separate and apart from the B.S./M.S. degree program in Athletic Training. After completing the M.S. in Advanced Athletic Training and Sports Sciences, you are NOT eligible to sit for the BOC Exam to become a certified athletic trainer. Individuals considering certification should inquire about the CAATE-accredited B.S./M.S. in Athletic Training.
