As an Athletic Training major, you’ll master the skills you need to become a certified athletic trainer.
While gaining a background in human anatomy and physiology, pathology, kinesiology and therapeutic modalities, you’ll learn how to prevent and assess injuries and illness, design rehabilitation programs and promote health, nutrition and wellness among athletes.
An intensive four-semester clinical rotation experience and observation requirements are the backbone of the program, allowing students to apply their knowledge and gain practical experience. All Plymouth State University students in the Bachelor of Science in Athletic Training program are required to complete a minimum of 800 and a maximum of 1200 supervised and approved clinical hours.
Our curriculum is based on the standards of and is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE). Students who successfully complete the program will be eligible to sit for the Board of Certification exam.
