Athletic Training Major (B.S.)
After Fall 2018 this program will no longer be admitting students.
The Department of Exercise Science and Physical Education (ESPE) is home to the first Athletic Training Bachelor of Science degree program in New Jersey. The Athletic Training Program at Montclair State University prepares students for careers as certified athletic trainers and culminates in a B.S. in Athletic Training. Athletic trainers are allied health professionals, recognized by the American Medical Association, who are highly educated and skilled in injuries that result from physical activity. The certified athletic trainer works with the physically active to prevent, rehabilitate, and manage athletic injuries and general medical conditions in secondary schools; universities; clinics; professional teams; military; sports medicine clinics and hospitals; performing arts; physician offices; occupational workplaces and industry.
As with all academic programs in the College of Education and Human Services (CEHS), the Athletic Training Bachelor of Science fosters an appreciation of the diversity among our students and the individuals who utilize athletic training services. The Athletic Training Bachelor of Science degree promotes the values and practices of democratic citizenship and diversity; students from various backgrounds are valued and respected. Coursework provides students an opportunity to develop extensive and comprehensive didactic preparation for clinical practice as well as tools to support critical thinking, lifelong learning, research and professional scholarship.
The Commission for the Accreditation of Athletic Training Education Programs (CAATE), establishes and maintain educational standards for accredited athletic training education programs. CAATE is sponsored by The American Academy of Family Physicians, the American Academy of Pediatrics, the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine, and the National Athletic Trainers' Association (NATA).
