CHANGES TO THE BACHELOR OF SCIENCE IN ATHLETIC TRAINING IN THE COLLEGE OF EDUCATION CHAPTER IN THE
UNDERGRADUATE CATALOG, 2010-2012


NAME OF DEGREE PROGRAM(S): Bachelor of Science in Athletic Training

EXPLAIN CHANGE(S) TO DEGREE PROGRAM:
1. Students will be given the option to take KIN 330E, Sport Nutrition or NTR 306, Fundamentals of Nutrition
2. Students will take a one-semester hour practicum course during each of the 6 professional semesters in the program. The practicum courses are no longer listed as KIN 127L, 227L, or 327L.

Indicate pages in the undergraduate catalog where changes will be made.
pages 126-127

GIVE A DETAILED RATIONALE FOR CHANGE(S):
1. KIN 330E is not offered every semester, so students will be given the option to take NTR 306, a basic nutrition course required by the national accrediting body.
2. The course descriptions and requirements for the KIN X27 Fieldwork course did not mirror what our students were actually doing in their “fieldwork/practicum” course. We created the 140X Practicum in Athletic Training courses to adequately reflect what the students were doing in the course. Students are required to enroll in a practicum course for each semester based on their level in the ATEP. The content and requirements for each practicum course are specific to the level of the student.


SCOPE OF THE PROPOSED CHANGE(S):
Does this proposal impact other colleges/schools? If yes, then how? Yes, it will impact the nutrition department in the College of Natural Sciences. However, since we have about 45 students in our Athletic Training program, only a handful of students will be taking NTR 306 in a given semester.
Has the other colleges/schools been informed of the proposed changes? If so, please indicate their responses: “Your Athletic Training students should not have a problem registering for NTR 306. This class will not apply to any NTR degree, so all seats go to non-majors. Currently, we have over 600 seats available each semester. The course is also taught during the summer.”
Person communicated with: Judy Willett – academic advisor III, nutrition department
Date of Communication: 7/16/09

Does this proposal involve changes to the core curriculum or other basic education requirements (42-hour core, signature courses, flags)? If yes, please explain: No.
If yes, has the School of Undergraduate Studies been informed of the proposed changes? If so, please indicate their response: N/A

Will this proposal change the number of required hours for degree completion? If yes, please explain.Yes, since we have lowered the number of overall semester hours required for the major from 130 to 124, we are only requiring 36 hours of upper-division course work.


COLLEGE/SCHOOL APPROVAL PROCESS:
Department Approval Date: April 23, 2009
College Approval Date: May 13, 2009
Dean Approval Date: August 5, 2009
