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 Bachelor of Science in Health Science (pre-athletic training track) curriculum integrates requirements for your undergraduate degree with those for your graduate degree, shortening the time it takes you to earn a master's degree. This degree option is best for students committed to athletic training or who might be considering other healthcare careers.

After enrolling in the pre-athletic training major 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.

The pre-athletic training track for Whitworth's B.S. in health science was specifically designed to prepare you for successful entry into an accredited, graduate-level athletic training program. This track includes all prerequisite courses for a Whitworth master of science in athletic training.

Pre-athletic training students may choose to complete a Bachelor of Arts in Kinesiology (not available in the accelerated format) before beginning their master's degree. This option is ideal for those also interested in coaching and/or teaching professions; please contact the athletic training program director (509.777.3464) for more information.
