Athletic Training Program Info: The mission of the Athletic Training Education Program (ATEP) within the Division of Kinesiology is to develop entry-level allied health professionals who will be contributing members to the field of athletic training. The primary objective is to offer a well-rounded combination of academic course work and clinical experiences that will educate students on the prevention, treatment, and rehabilitation of injuries and illnesses for the physically active. This program will prepare students for entry-level work in secondary schools, colleges and universities, sports medicine clinics, professional sports programs, industrial settings, and other healthcare environments. The curriculum is designed to meet certification and accreditation standards set forth by the Board of Certification for the Athletic Trainer (BOC) and the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE). The program is currently accredited by CAATE. Students who complete the ATEP will receive a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree in Kinesiology, and will meet the requirements to sit for the BOC Examination. Certification is required to practice athletic training in most states.
