Return the Department.  .

Program Overview:

In an attempt to capture and cultivate students interested in Athletic Training and who come to the University of Delaware as freshman students, this hybrid “3+2” model has been created whereby students will matriculate for their first 3 years as undergraduate students gaining the necessary pre-requisite coursework and checking off additional admissions requirements as needed for the entry-level master’s degree program in Athletic Training.  It is anticipated that the initial 28 credit hours of graduate coursework taken during the 1styear of the entry-level master’s degree program in Athletic Training would be used to satisfy the 120 minimum credit hours required for the baccalaureate degree (Sports Health), with the additional coursework credit hours being used to satisfy the graduate degree.  Because there are no other Athletic Training education programs in the State of Delaware from which students could feed into UD’s entry-level MS-AT program, this unique “3+2” model will provide students who are native to UD an opportunity to merge directly into the MS-AT program if all admissions requirements are satisfied.  Students in Sports Health should seek academic guidance from faculty/staff members in Athletic Training to insure that all requirements are satisfied and will be directed to apply for admission to the MS-AT program during their 3rdyear.  The following combines the coursework requirements of the two programs (Sports Health + Athletic Training):

  • ENGL 110 - Seminar in Composition (3cr.) (C- minimum)
  • First Year Seminar (FYS) (0-4 credits)
