The HERS Department provides a 3+2 opportunity for students interested in a Master of Science in Athletic Training (MSAT) degree via the HERS - Exercise & Rehabilitative Sciences - Movement Science (ERMS) - BS Major  and the Athletic Training (MSAT) - MS degree (see graduate catalog). This five-year accelerated program is designed to provide students an opportunity to complete both academic degrees in less time than traditional programs. View the HERS - Athletic Training/Movement Science 3+2 Program - BS Major  program page for more information.

The 3+2 program option contains all the requirements for completion of a BS degree at WSU and all the professional requirements to complete a graduate degree in Athletic Training that leads to eligibility to sit for the national examination from the Board of Certification (BOC). Students interested in completing this five-year program should declare both ERMS and Pre-Athletic Training (PRAT) upon entering WSU. The PRAT declaration is important so an advisor can be assigned to successfully guide your academic progress.
