Athletic training is a health care profession that deals with the prevention, evaluation, emergency care and rehabilitation of athletic injuries. The athletic training major is designed to offer the knowledge, skills and experience necessary for a student to become eligible to take the Board of Certification national examination.
The program is structured to prepare students for entry-level athletic training positions and graduate studies in athletic training. This program is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE). Because of the nature of the clinical education portion of the program, the athletic training program is selective, and space is limited.
