PROPOSED CHANGES TO THE ATHLETIC TRAINING DEGREE PROGRAM IN THE COLLEGE OF EDUCATION SECTION IN THE UNDERGRADUATE CATALOG, 2014-2016


Type of Change Academic Change
  1. IF THE ANSWER TO ANY OF THE FOLLOWING QUESTIONS IS YES, THE COLLEGE MUST CONSULT NEAL ARMSTRONG WHO WILL DETERMINE WHETHER SACS-COC APPROVAL IS NEEDED.
    • Is this a new degree program? No
    • Does the program offer courses that will be taught off campus? No
    • Will courses in this program be delivered electronically? No

  2. EXPLAIN CHANGE TO DEGREE PROGRAM AND GIVE A DETAILED RATIONALE FOR EACH INDIVIDUAL CHANGE:
    A. Change the name of the major from Athletic Training Education Program to Athletic Training Program.
    Rationale: This is in accordance to accreditation by the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE).
    B. The College of Education will begin requiring all six flags in alignment with the new University Core Curriculum in the 2014-16 catalog. We’ll delete the “Flag Requirements” section and include a statement about the flags in the “Core Curriculum” statement.
    Rationale: This aligns our program with the core curriculum.
    C. Under the “Prescribed Work” #2b, remove the additional social science requirement.
    Rationale: Deleting the extra social science class allows us space to create new required classes under the “Major Requirements” area in accordance to accreditation by CAATE.
    D. Under the “Prescribed Work” #4b (Natural Science area), change six hours of chemistry to six hours of chemistry (301 & 302 or 304K & 305), physics (302K & 302L, 309K & 309L, or 317K & 317L), or physical science (P S 303 & 304)
    Rationale: This will allow students more options when choosing science courses for their core and degree requirements.
    E. Under “Prescribed Work” #4c (Natural Science area), change the “three hours of coursework in astronomy, biology, chemistry, computer science‚Ķ” to NTR 306 or NTR 312.
    Rationale: The KIN 330E Sport Nutrition class hasn’t been taught in a number of years, so we want to remove the NTR requirement from the “Major Requirements” to the “Prescribed Work”.¬† Our students are already taking NTR 306, so it’s not an extra burden on the NTR department.
    F. Under the “Prescribed Work” #6 & #7, remove CMS 306M and the foreign language requirement from the degree requirements.
    Rationale: Removing these classes allows us to create new required classes under the “Major Requirements” area in accordance to accreditation CAATE.
    G. Under the “Major Requirements”, move KIN 119 Conditioning out of (1b) in the required courses to (#3) in the “Major Requirements”; add “Lower Body” to the title of KIN 344 Therapeutic Exercise and Rehabilitation Techniques (#1k); change the name of KIN 345 Topics in Athletic Training (#1L) to General Medical Conditions in Athletic Training; add KIN 140 Senior Seminar in Athletic Training; add newly created courses KIN 34 Therapeutic Exercise and Rehabilitation - Upper Body; add KIN 363 Theory & Practice in Strength Training; change the “three additional hours in kinesiology or health education” in #3 to nine hours of kinesiology, health education, or allied health professions prerequisites.
    Rationale: These changes/updates will allow us to add classes in the major curriculum to maintain accreditation by the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE) and also give students the option to use allied health professions prerequisites as degree requirements instead of electives.
