Athletic trainers specialize in health care related to individuals who are physically active throughout their life spans. The athletic training profession is a rapidly growing health career. Traditionally, athletic trainers have worked in schools and professional sports. The profession, however, has expanded into several emerging settings of employment, such as health clubs, physician offices, military, performing arts, and industrial settings.
This bachelor of arts program is designed for students interested in obtaining an entry level master's degree in athletic training. The curriculum in this program is designed to give students a well rounded background in the hard and applied sciences related to the profession of athletic training. Students will also begin taking courses directly related to the profession, obtaining hands on experience before starting the professional portion of an athletic training program.
The university is currently working on creating an entry level master’s program. Once the program is approved, students will have the option of taking four years to finish the B.A. program or enter into an accelerated B.A. and M.S. program that would enable students to finish both the B.A. and M.S. in five years.
