Majoring in Athletic Training involves the study of how to prevent and treat sports injuries through therapeutic exercises and nutrition. You’ll learn kinesiology concepts in rehabilitation sciences, human movement, exercise and management. How can athletes avoid injury? How do you treat injuries when they do happen? How are treatment tools such as ultrasound used? You’ll gain knowledge and skills that are important for admission to graduate programs in athletic training or for any career in fitness or wellness as you take 48 credit hours towards a Bachelor of Arts degree in exercise science with an emphasis in athletic training.
You'll also have real opportunities to learn beyond the classroom via Concordia Health Alliance for Majors in Physical Education & Kinesiology (CHAMP) Club activities; participation in conferences, workshops, seminars, and clinics locally and nationally; and internship opportunities with a variety of organizations and sports teams. Because we design our athletic training program to be responsive to the exact needs of the marketplace, it will be a relevant degree if you’re considering graduate study in athletic training or a career in fitness/wellness centers, personal training, coaching, rehabilitation sciences or health and wellness education.
