Pre-Athletic Training

Help treat and prevent injuries.

WHY STUDY PRE-ATHLETIC TRAINING?

Athletic trainers diagnose, treat and prevent injuries to bone and muscle while working under the direction of a doctor or other health care professional.

If you want to become an athletic trainer, you’ll need to earn a master’s degree from an institution that is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation by Athletic Training Education. Most master’s programs require students to take many prerequisite courses.

WHAT WILL I LEARN?

You’ll get the foundational knowledge you’ll need in human anatomy and physiology, human movement and function, proper nutrition, physical sciences and behavioral sciences. Our program includes a majority of the prerequisites that are standard for most master’s-level programs, and we’ll make sure you have taken the appropriate courses for the graduate school you’re choosing.
