About Athletic Training
A blend of extensive hands-on experience and rigorous coursework prepares you to sit for the Board of Certification exam, the only route to becoming a certified practicing athletic trainer. This major enables you to evaluate, diagnose, treat, and rehabilitate a wide range of athletic injuries under the direct supervision of a licensed physician. Program alumni currently serve as athletic trainers in high schools and colleges, clinics, and even with professional teams.
