    Five-Year Bachelor's to Master Option

In this option, students complete four years of undergraduate coursework in the Sport and Exercise Science Department as well as the Gannon University Core of Discovery, 128 credits in total, followed by 32 credits over the course of three semesters culminating in the Master of Athletic Training degree. Beginning the fall of their fourth year, students will begin the "professional phase" of their program. At the conclusion of the spring semester of the 4thyear, students will receive a Bachelor of Science degree with a major in Sport and Exercise Science. Following completion of the 5th year, students will receive a Master of Athletic Training degree.
