B.S. in Athletic Training

B.S. in Athletic Training (current students)

The athletic training program at Otterbein is a nationally accredited program through the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE), 6850 Austin Center Blvd., Suite 100, Austin, TX 78731-3101. This distinction means our program meets all the nationally recognized Standards for Accreditation of Professional Athletic Training Programs.

The athletic training profession has moved the degree for athletic training from a bachelors to a masters, effective in summer 2020. Otterbein University and the Ohio Department of Higher Education (ODHE) and the Higher Learning Commission have approved our transition to the master’s degree, therefore we will not be accepting any further applications for the B.S. in Athletic Training degree. The Masters of Athletic Training Program at Otterbein University is seeking approval from the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE).

Students enrolling after spring of 2020 are encouraged to consider the Bachelor of Science in Allied Health Pre Athletic Training concentration to prepare them for the Masters of Athletic Training Program. Fall of 2020 is the anticipated date of the first cohort to start in the Masters of Athletic Training Program at Otterbein University. For more information, please contact Dr. Joan Rocks, Program Director.
