Athletic training is an allied health-care profession that works with athletes and active individuals to aid in preventing, diagnosing, treating and rehabilitating injuries. Athletic trainers work in a variety of settings, including clinics and hospitals, high schools, colleges and universities, business and industry, performing arts and the military, among others.

The Athletic Training major prepares students to follow their passion for athletics and exercise while working with a diverse group of people in the field or clinic. In addition to a career in athletic training, students gain further education and find employment as physical therapists, physician assistants, chiropractors and other allied health-care providers.
