New Degree Program Request: Athletic Training Education Program
This is a request for approval of a new major under the Bachelor of Health degree. This new program in Athletic Training will continue in its mission of educating students in preparation for a career in athletic training and sports medicine. The Joint Committee on Athletic Training Education Programs (JRC-AT) requires that programs seeking accreditation or reaccredidation are academic majors or major equivalents, depending on institutional organization. One program we are often compared to is "Physical Therapy." Since UNF awards a Physical Therapy degree in the discipline, it is essential that to remain accredited we become a stand alone major.
APC Note: This request has, to date, been approved
by the department chair and COH Dean, and by the Academic Program Committee
