Advising for 3:2 Program in Kinesiology & Athletic Training

The College of Health Professions offers entry level graduate clinical education in Athletic Training (AT) that lines up with the requirements for a Kinesiology major. Students who complete the Kinesiology major as well as complete one semester of Biology, one semester of Physics, and one semester of Chemistry will have met the admission requirements and would be eligible to pursue the 3/2 pathway.

The 3/2 pathway consists of three years of study in the College of Arts and Sciences (A&S) and two years of study in the clinical program. This 3/2 pathway is available only to students accepted to the highly selective AT program.  To utilize this route, all A&S core requirements (except capstone), all AT prerequisites, and a minimum of 93 total credits shall be completed by the end of the 3rd academic year. During the junior fall, students may apply to begin AT clinical studies for the 4th academic year. 

3/2 Program Requirements: 

Students will take the following AT courses in the first professional year instead of taking the KINES courses prior to starting the AT program. 

AT Coursework to Fulfill Kinesiology degree within 3:2 AT Program
KINES 300 is replaced with AT 505 - Anatomy Review 2 credits
KINES 400 is replaced with AT 560 - Intro to Evidence-Based Practice 2 credits
KINES 499 is replaced with AT 550 - Research Methods and Statistics 2 credits

Fourth Year (first professional year in Athletic Training program): If accepted, specific coursework successfully completed according to AT program standards during the first clinical year will satisfy the remaining requirements for the Kinesiology degree. These students must deliver a formal public presentation of their first-year clinical internship experiences to complete the A&S Capstone requirement. If a student is not accepted into the AT program, s/he will have the opportunity to complete the Kinesiology during the traditional timeframe with few complications.
