Degree Programs

*Graduation from an athletic training program accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE), 6836 Austin Center Blvd. Suite 250, Austin, TX 78731; phone; 512-733-9700; is necessary for eligibility to sit for the Board of Certification Examination (BOC) , which is required to be licensed in all states.

Samford University is seeking accreditation of a new master of athletic training program from the CAATE. The program will submit an Application for Accreditation including a Self-Study and on-site visit. Submission of this document and completing the site visit does not assure that the program will be granted Accreditation. Students who graduate prior to the program’s achievement of accreditation will not be eligible to sit for the BOC examination.
