About the Program Athletic Training (BS)

Barry University will no longer accept freshman students into the Athletic Training program for the fall 2022 cohort.

We are transitioning to a Master’s degree program.

More details on that program are coming soon.

 

Barry University's undergraduate athletic training program will give you a comprehensive view of the field and prepare you for career opportunities in professions related to the care, prevention, assessment, and rehabilitation of injuries related to physical activity. 

The Athletic Training bachelor's degree also provides a strong foundation in the sciences for students interested in pursuing graduate study in athletic training or in the related fields of exercise physiology, occupational therapy, physical therapy, recreational therapy, and physician's assistant. It will also provide you with the knowledge, skills and credentials to sit for the Board of Certification exam.

    Hands-on experience during all four years of study

    We treat the national standards for athletic training programs as a foundation to be built upon. For example, only two years of clinical experience are required for accreditation, but we integrate it into all four years. We do more than the minimum, because we want you to have the very best preparation.

    One of the first programs to be accredited

    Barry's program was one of the first undergraduate programs in the nation to be accredited. The program is presently accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE). Accreditation is an important distinction; it will enable you to sit for the board exam prior to graduation.
