BA in HHP + MS in Athletic Training

Pre-Athletic Training and U2G with Exercise Science BA

Athletic Trainers (ATs) are healthcare professionals who render service or treatment under the direction of, or in collaboration with, a physician in accordance with their education, training and applicable laws. As a part of a healthcare team, AT services include injury and illness prevention, wellness promotion and education, emergent care, examination and clinical diagnosis, therapeutic intervention, and rehabilitation of injuries and medical conditions.

There are two routes available to apply to the Master of Science in Athletic Training at the University of Iowa.

1. Students may either complete the Pre-AT requirements along with their chosen Bachelor’s degree

2. Complete the Undergrad-to-Grad (U2G) program

Pre-AT students who major in Exercise Science BA may potentially earn their Bachelor’s and MSAT in five total years. This option, known as Undergrad-to-Grad program and is best fit for Exercise Science BA students who know from their first semester they want to pursue an MSAT. The U2G program is very rigorous and has a regimented schedule that must be followed in order to complete both degrees in five years.  See the curriculum link here or contact your academic advisor for more details.
