The University of New Mexico is excited to start its new professional master’s degree program in July 2022. This program is designed to prepare students to become a Certified Athletic Trainer. Upon completion of the program, students will be eligible to sit for the Board of Certification (BOC) exam.
The University of New Mexico’s undergraduate program is currently accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE). The program will apply to the CAATE for a change in level of degree during the 2021-2022 academic year.
