Bachelor of Science in Athletic Training, Curriculum
Athletic Training students are bound by the academic requirements that are in effect the semester that they have been accepted into the program. New Athletic Training majors who enter the college in Fall 2014, will follow the requirements and curriculum listed in the 2014-15 Ithaca College Undergraduate Catalog.

Beginning in 2014, the program ushered in a few exciting changes to our undergraduate curriculum that enhances and streamlines our course and clinical offerings. Highlights of the new curriculum include a new Introduction to Evidence Based Medicine & Clinical Reasoning, a new earlier Clinical Experience class for first semester sophomore majors, an additional Assessment of Athletic Injuries course (making what was once a 1 semester course, a year long, 2 course sequence), and a new Acute Care & Emergency Management in Athletic Training course to better address emerging and critical issues in athlete health.
For planning purposes, the department has created a sample worksheet which outlines a typical 8-semester sequencing of these requirements. As is the case with the catalog, since requirements may be different from one year to the next, it is important that students utilize the worksheet corresponding to the year in which they were accepted into the program. In addition, this worksheet is simply a guide...students should work with their academic adviser in order to customize their 4-year plan according to their interests, especially if they have plans of attending a professional degree program after matriculating from IC and thus require additional bioscientific pre-requisite courses.
