About This Program

Looking for graduate programs?

We also offer a Master of Education or Master of Science in athletic training.



Through our highly competitive athletic training major, you’ll gain the knowledge to become an evidence-based practicing clinician who understands the scientific process of discovery, critical thinking, and analysis. 

With three full years of hands-on learning opportunities, our clinical education curriculum is designed to first introduce you to skills during highly structured lab settings, where you are able to learn and practice on classmates under the close supervision of the instructor. You’ll then have the opportunity to develop your skills with actual patients. 

And, you’ll learn it all in the classroom and through our athletic training facility, which will introduce you to the same types of tools and equipment you’ll be using throughout your career.
