Bachelor's + Master's in Athletic Training
Whitworth's athletic training program enables you to save time and money while you complete the curriculum for your bachelor's and master's degrees in an intensive, accelerated full-time format. New students can complete the requirements for both a bachelor's degree (three-year pre-athletic-training phase) and a master's degree (two-year professional phase) in five years.
If you've already completed some college credits, you can transfer into the program to complete your bachelor's and master's degrees in as little as three years.

How it Works
The pre-athletic-training curriculum integrates requirements for your undergraduate degree (typically Whitworth's B.S. in health science or B.A. in kinesiology) with those for your graduate degree, shortening the time it takes you to earn a master's degree.
- Bachelor of science in health science (pre-athletic-training track): This option is best for students also interested in healthcare professions.
- Bachelor of arts in kinesiology (pre-athletic-training track): This option is best for students also interested in the coaching and/or teaching professions.
After enrolling in one of the pre-athletic-training majors at Whitworth, you'll complete the majority of your undergraduate major requirements during the pre-professional phase of your program. Then you will begin taking the two years (professional phase) of the master's-level coursework leading to your MSAT.
Pre-athletic-training tracks for Whitworth's B.S. in health science and B.A. in kinesiology were specifically designed to prepare you for a successful entry into an accredited, graduate-level athletic training program. Both tracks include all prerequisite courses for a Whitworth master of science in athletic training.
