Where can this degree take me?
Be an expert on the field. Athletic training majors share a few central qualities: a drive to perform at the highest standard, a spirit of compassion for those around them, and a desire to integrate their faith with the healing process. In partnership with Trinity College, we will provide everything you need to become an athletic trainer in five years. We will train you in injury prevention, rehabilitation, immediate care, and professional responsibility as you prepare to hit the ground running in this field.
Please note that this curriculum is undergoing an accreditation process. The Master’s in Athletic Training is expected to launch in Summer 2018, though students may currently enroll in the BA in Exercise Science (with Pre-AT Emphasis) to receive an early start on this dual-degree program.
What will I study?
Major requirements total 181 hours. This includes 39 hours in the Exercise Science core, 16 hours of Pre-Athletic Training Emphasis, and 15 hours of general electives. You will have the opportunity to practice your skills on the field with any of our various university sports teams, including football, men and women’s soccer or basketball, and more. Interesting courses you will take include: Rehabilitation and Therapeutic Exercise, Introduction to Bioethics, and Physiology of Exercise.
Course descriptions for undergraduate courses are listed in the Trinity College Catalog. Course descriptions for graduate courses are listed in the Trinity Graduate School Catalog. Students are expected to consult with their undergraduate and graduate advisors to make individual adjustments to the curricular plan as necessary.
