Program Description


By 2022, the athletic training profession will be requiring a Master's degree for entry-level positions. Chatham University's innovative five-year program puts you ahead of the curve by allowing you to earn both your BS in Exercise Science and your MS in Athletic Training at the end of five years of study.

The 3+2 degree offers an accelerated bachelor's degree in exercise science. This program will allow students to complete the requirements for the BS degree while transitioning into the Athletic Training graduate program. After successful completion of the MS program, students will have earned bachelor's and master's degrees in five years.
