Exercise Science - Clinical and Pre-Professional Studies Concentration (B.S.) (Combined B.S./M.S. Athletic Training)

A Combined Degree program enables undergraduate students to enroll in graduate courses in their senior year, which can be counted towards the completion of both their Bachelor's and Master's degree requirements.  The ability to take these "swing courses" allows students to earn both their Bachelor's and Master's degrees in a shortened period of time, typically within five years of intensive study.  Undergraduate students interested in this option can find more information regarding program requirements on the University's Combined Programs website.

Program Requirements

Students in this combined degree program must complete the requirements for:
