Year 4 at Youngstown State University (YSU) will start in the summer following the Walsh junior year. The summer, fall and spring of year 4 will be at YSU. Total credits at YSU, including summer, fall and spring of year 4, will count toward 35 credit hours of exercise science coursework, exercise science electives and core curriculum at Walsh.
The first 3 years at Walsh will include courses shown in the Table above (NOT the YSU MAT courses in year 4), as well as the majority of the general education curriculum. It may require some summer courses to complete this major in the 3+2 window. Check with your advisor for details.
At the end of the spring semester in year 4, the BS in Exercise Science Pre-Athletic Training will have been earned and you will graduate from Walsh. You will then need to apply to the YSU Master's of Athletic Training program (see advisor for details) to complete the 5th year at YSU. Once accepted into the YSU Master's of Athletic Training program, you will complete summer, fall and spring courses at YSU to finish an MS in Athletic Training from YSU in the spring of year 5.
PLEASE NOTE: During year 4, the Walsh students in the 3+2 Pre-Athletic Training program will have both a Walsh and YSU advisor. Special consideration will be made to work with Honors students.
The exact courses involved in this program are subject to change. All changes will benefit students enrolled.
