Introduction

The University of Evansville offers two programs for students wishing to pursue a degree in athletic training. The undergraduate degree is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE). The CAATE has also granted a five year initial accreditation to the Professional Athletic Training Program’s Master of Science in Athletic Training.

The Bachelor of Science in Athletic Training degree is designed for those individuals who are seeking certification as an athletic trainer from the Board of Certification (BOC). The Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE) is the accrediting body which governs all athletic training programs. The University of Evansville’s Athletic Training Program (ATP) has been accredited since 2003 and is accredited through 2024. The ATP will accept freshman students for the fall of 2020 with these students graduating from UE by 2024. The ATP will no longer accept students graduating from high school in the years 2021 and beyond. For students graduating from high school in 2021 and beyond, UE offers a MSAT program.

The University of Evansville is the smallest Division I Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE)-accredited school in the country. Athletic training (AT) students are challenged with rigorous course work and hands-on experiences, such as their involvement with UE’s Division I athletic programs, from their first week on campus. University of Evansville AT students are highly marketable, as they have the flexibility to explore many branches of study and develop diverse skill sets through the AT and Doctor of Physical Therapy-combination degree programs. The AT student leaves UE prepared, as seen in the Board of Certification exam first-time pass rates where UE performs well above the national average. UE's athletic training program is part of the School of Health Sciences.
