By combining classroom learning with clinical experiences, the athletic training minor will prepare students for admission into an accredited entry-level master’s program in athletic training or entry-level employment in the health care field. In conjunction with a liberal arts or biology major, the athletic training minor will help students to develop the critical thinking skills necessary to evaluate and treat athletic injuries.
Upon acceptance to the athletic training minor, students will be required to complete a clinical assignment per semester with one of the university’s sports teams as well as a specific number of courses. As students, you will be challenged not only in the classroom, but also in clinical settings. These challenges are necessary for your education. Adjustments to work and personal schedules will be required so please plan accordingly. Take advantage of every opportunity to which you are exposed and you will succeed.
