Double major in Sport Journalism and Media & Broadcasting
Students interested in Sport Media/Broadcasting can enroll both majors. Students who enter Millersville as a Freshman and follow the 4-year plan will be able to graduate with both majors and finish at 120 credits. Those students who start the double major after their first semester should work closely with their advisors to finish the program in a timely manner.
Pre-Athletic Training 3+2 Degree
This is a dual degree program for well-prepared students. During 3 years of study at MU, students complete the requirements for admission to an affiliated graduate program. Upon completion of 1 year of graduate study, credits transfer back to MU to satisfy the requirements for the BS degree in Allied Health Technology, Pre-Athletic Training. Students then earn a Master of Science in Athletic Training from the affiliated university after the second year of graduate study.

Sports Medicine Degree
The Sports Medicine degree program is for students who envision a future career in healthcare professions such as athletic trainer, physical therapist, occupational therapist, physician assistant, or orthopedic medicine. This academic major provides students with the foundational knowledge of the human body, sport performance, and basic injury care, as well as the prerequisite coursework needed to become eligible for graduate school.
Healthcare professional preparation programs typically require that students hold a bachelor’s degree prior to admission into graduate school. This major is for students who wish to pursue graduate school after earning their bachelor’s degree at Millersville University. Students in the Sports Medicine program are assigned an academic advisor who will recommend strategies that promote success.
Athletic Coaching Minor
The Department of Wellness and Sport Sciences offers a minor in athletic coaching for those wishing to develop the knowledge and skills necessary to safely coach athletes. Students are eligible to receive certification in the American Sports Education Program.
SPORTS STUDIES MINOR
The minor in Sport Studies gives students the opportunity to examine the role that sport plays in shaping culture and provides information needed for sport-related careers in the humanities and the social and environmental sciences.
With the new major in Journalism, a minor in Sport Studies is necessary for the University to continue to offer students the opportunity to prepare for careers in Sport Journalism. In addition, students who graduate in a major related to a sport field of study may look to advance their degree status with entry into a respective graduate program. The Sport Studies minor would provide the background necessary to enhance acceptance into one of these graduate programs.
