Athletic Training Major B.S.
What is athletic training?
Athletic trainers are multi-skilled healthcare professionals who work with physicians to prevent, diagnose and treat sports-related injuries. This degree will prepare you for work as an athletic trainer for schools and universities, sports medicine clinics, hospitals, wellness centers and recreation departments, and other facilities. Demand in this industry is expected to grow in the coming years because of the increased awareness of sports-related injuries in the young, as well as today’s more active aging populations.
