The University of Missouri’s Athletic Training Program is currently accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE), 6850 Austin Center Blvd., Suite 100, Austin, TX 78731-3101. The undergraduate program is currently in the process of transitioning to a master’s degree and will apply to the CAATE for a change in level of degree pending institutional, state, and regional accreditor approval. The Athletic Training program anticipates notifying the CAATE for a level of degree change in early 2019.
The Athletic Training program is no longer accepting students to the undergraduate athletic training program. Information on our new master’s degree (including how to apply) will be posted to the Athletic Training program web site upon approval.
The mission of the University of Missouri Athletic Training Program is to prepare students for a career in athletic training by offering quality education through a variety of clinical experiences and didactic coursework.
Upon completion of the MU Athletic Training Program (ATP), students will earn a Bachelor of Health Sciences in Athletic Training (BHS-AT) degree from the MU School of Health Professions and will be eligible to sit for the national board exam, offered by the BOC to become a certified Athletic Trainer.
