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 and Health (KNH), Athletic Training and Dietetics, are accredited by their respective professional organizations.
