Bethel's Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) in Biokinetics is a condensed program designed to prepare students for the M.S. in Athletic Training. Pending approval, students wishing to become athletic trainers will be able to meet new state requirements and finish both degrees in as few as five years.

Why should I study biokinetics as a precursor to athletic training?

Bethel's rapidly-growing Biokinetics program prepares applied scientists who can address a wide range of health needs related to lifestyle, aging, physical performance, and inactivity. Utilizing state-of-the-art labs, students examine human biological systems, and their reaction to stressors on the body, in order to develop strategies for preventing disease and injury, improving physical performance, and increasing quality of life.

The Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) is specifically designed for students who are continuing on to the M.S. in Athletic Training. In this "3-2" program, where they take three years of undergraduate coursework followed by the master's program, students benefit from Bethel's small class sizes and incredible undergraduate research opportunities while also meeting heightened clinical requirements for athletic trainers.

The experiences and education that I received in the Biokinetics program at Bethel have been invaluable to me as a current full-time graduate student. I chose the Biokinetics program in order to be as fully prepared as possible. I wouldn't trade my undergraduate experience for anything.
