Athletic Training/Sport Medicine

About the B.S. in Sport Management Degree

Cedarville will begin offering a three-year, distinctly Christian B.S. in sport medicine degree program in fall 2019, preparing you to enter Cedarville’s Master of Athletic Training (M.A.T.)* program. When you enter this B.S. program with preferred admission to the M.A.T. program, you ensure your spot in graduate school, freeing you to truly enjoy your undergraduate experience.

We have strategically designed the B.S. in sport medicine curriculum so the senior year is taken as part of the first year of our M.A.T. program. When you are admitted into the M.A.T. program, you are able to complete a B.S. in sport medicine, a Bible minor, and a Master of Athletic Training degree in just five years.

If you do not want to pursue an M.A.T., you may complete a fourth year in the sport medicine program and graduate with a bachelor’s degree.
