About the B.S. in Sport Medicine Degree

Cedarville University's three-year, distinctly Christian B.S. in sport medicine program will prepare 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.

With the Sport Medicine + M.A.T. option, 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.

*Cedarville University will pursue a degree level change in its current athletic training program accreditation through CAATE prior to the launch of the Master of Athletic Training in 2022.
