The Athletic Training Specialization requires rigorous academic success in the courses listed above to be successful in passing the state licensure exams by the Advisory Board of Athletic Trainers and the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation. Minimum grade of “C” is required in all listed courses in the major, as well as Biology 2323/2123, Biology 2324/2124, Health Science Professions 2301/2101, 2302/2102, or their equivalent.

Because C-required courses are considered to be critical courses in this specialization, if a student earns a grade of “D” or “F” in one or more of these courses, he/she may want to consider the reason for this unsatisfactory performance. If his/her performance relates to lack of interest and/or ability, he/she may want to consider the appropriateness of this specialization for their academic program.
