NOTES:

*PT101 and 201 may be substituted for ATH101 and 201 on a case by case basis.

! ATH 101 (1) and ATH 201 (2) will count for NSC 231(3) as per Natural Science Department. NSC 231:  Scientific Language & Literacy Seminar is a required course for all Natural Science students; however, students enrolled in the dual degree B.S. degree in Natural Science with a Health Science specialization and M.S. degree in Athletic Training will fulfill this requirement with the completion of ATH 101 and ATH 201.

**Students may begin observation hours upon completion of the Blood Borne Pathogen training.  Students must obtain 50 clinical observation hours for application into the professional phase.  Please see the Daemen college website for more information.
