Exploring Athletic Training
Kinesiology is the study of human movement and all its manifestations. Liberally educated people must understand and appreciate the importance of movement to their quality of life. The athletic training emphasis prepares students to become entry-level certified athletic trainers. They are highly educated and skilled professionals who provide health care for athletes and those participating in physical activity. Certified athletic trainers may work in high schools, colleges/universities, clinics/hospitals, professional sports teams, and in corporations/industries. The athletic training major is part of the Department of Kinesiology and Athletics. Students who complete the major will receive a bachelor of science degree in athletic training. Program graduates will be eligible to take the BOC certification upon completion of program and CAATE requirements.
