About the B.S. in Sport Medicine Degree

Why Study Sport Medicine at Cedarville?

If you're interested in pursuing a career as  an athletic trainer, Cedarville University's sport medicine major is your starting point. With the Sport Medicine + M.A.T. option, we have strategically designed the Bachelor of Science 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. Cedarville's Athletic Training program is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education  (CAATE).

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