The Department of Athletic Training (AT) in the Dr. Ezekiel R. Dumke College of Health Professions, offers programs that educate students in the prevention, evaluation, management, and rehabilitation of injuries and illnesses. The variety of teaching environments and facilities are supported by faculty with diverse expertise and offer graduate and undergraduate students exceptional educational, clinical, and research experiences. The state-of-the-art facilities, including fully equipped laboratory classrooms, research labs, and hydrotherapy pool provide outstanding opportunities for student instruction and research. With curriculums designed to develop professional knowledge and skills, graduates from the department are prepared for careers in athletic training (via the MS in Athletic Training), or professional graduate programs in athletic training, physical therapy, occupational therapy, physician’s assistant, and medicine (via the BS in Athletic Therapy).
The department of Athletic Training offers a Master of Science degree in athletic training, and Bachelor of Science degrees in athletic therapy and athletic training. Note that the BS in Athletic Training is being phased out and is no longer accepting students.
The department also supports the efforts of undergraduates seeking the bachelor of integrated studies degree, offering sports medicine as an emphasis for the BIS Program.
