Athletic Training Education Program
The Athletic Training Program is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE) and currently has more than 30 majors, with graduates working in high schools, colleges and universities, as well as clinics, corporations and professional sports teams.
This major is designed for those students who are interested in becoming certified athletic trainers. This major will prepare students to sit for the Board of Certification for the Athletic Trainer Examination, and work competently in the field of athletic training and sports medicine. Students must apply and be accepted into the Athletic Training Education Program. Admission to the program is based upon evaluation of the student's application materials.
We believe we have an up-to-date, comprehensive and exciting program to offer you.
