Accreditation and Certification

Accreditation and certification provide assurance to students and prospective employers that our professional degree programs meet the highest standards. Two programs offered by the Department of Kinesiology, Nutrition and Health (KNH), Athletic Training and Dietetics, are accredited by their respective professional organizations.

Graduates of KNH's athletic training and dietetics programs are eligible to apply for professional certification. This requires passing a national exam and in the case of dietetics also fulfilling a professional internship following graduation.

Accredited programs

***As nationally mandated by the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE), the professional athletic training program at Miami University will transition from the Bachelor’s level to the Master’s level. It is proposed that beginning with the academic year 2019-2020, students wishing to pursue athletic training should enroll in the Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology program with the intention of applying to the Master of Athletic Training program during junior year. More specific detail on the Master of Athletic Training program is forthcoming.***
